French Mischief

French Mischief, David Salter, €9.04, Amazon Fulfillment ISBN: 978-1-5304-38938

‘HOW to annoy French people but still get things done’ seems to be the sub-text of this idiosyncratic book on a move to France giving an “honest exposure of the subsistence and conditions which face ex-pats”.

Genuinely funny in parts – imagine miming to buy a wheelbarrow with no French language and then try it for toilet paper – it is also touching as when describing a house build. Bluetits have nested in the breeze blocks and “the work became comparable to a game of ‘Jenga’ with blocks slid out from above or below the nest”.

Not a typical ‘Brit in France writes book’.
