The French Are Fabulous
June 02, 2013
I’ve loved all things French since… well, ever since I can remember. I would check out the book, Fun with French, from the Library and scour its pages, even though I had no idea what it said and no one I knew could tell me. Unfortunately, the Library no longer owns that book, though they do own many others that inspire me and make me long to return to France…
Some of my favorites are the ones written by Peter Mayle, an Englishman who made a new life in Provence, the south of France. I especially love his books A Year in Provence, Encore Provence, French Lessons, and A Good Year. If you enjoy detective and mystery stories, he has just written The Marseille Caper as well.
On another note, I’ve seen the movie, Les Miserables, twice in the theater and would like to see it again. Both times I went with a friend, and we ended up in tears. Great movie! : ) I’m now on the waiting list for it at the Library and can’t wait to start the book. If you are also a Francophile, you may want to give one… or some… or all of these a try…
A bientot/Till later!
