My French Connection

Coming To Grips With The World's Most Beautiful Bu T Baffling Country

eBook - 2010
Rate this:
In 1988, journalist Sheryle Bagwell went to France seeking an escape from her real life back home. She discovered an unexpected country - one where the popular images of naturally thin women and national arrogance vie with the spread of fast food and crippling self-doubt about France's place in the world; where hypochondria and the slacker ethic are national obsessions; and where the code of liberte, egalite and fraternite is being tested by the rise of an anti-immigrant mood and violent street riots. Living and working in Paris and Lyon with her husband, Michael, Sheryle navigates local customs, language and baffling social niceties, uncovering a country that is charming, sometimes maddening, and more than a little contradictory.
