9781903933565: More France Please, We're British!: 15 Lessons on Life in France

Are you ready for the ultimate French lesson? Forget Avoir and Etre - what do you do when the electric company turns off the power? When the well dries up and you find yourself washing in Perrier water? When the nanny drives the car over the side of a cliff? And when a semi-feral dog bites off the nose of a guest? MORE FRANCE PLEASE, WE'RE BRITISH is a sparkling insiders' guide to the secrets of making a new life in France by Helena Frith Powell, writer of the French Mistress column in The Sunday Times. Now she has collected scores of real-life stories about the expatriate life in France into an indispensable guide, sharing her savoir faire in a book that will become a standard text for all would-be expats and owners of second homes. From buying a vineyard or chateau to having a baby on the French health service, Helena's French lessons start off where GCSE French stopped. You'd be mad to leave home without it.

About the Author:

In her early twenties Helena Frith Powell modelled and hung out with people such as Boy George and bands like Wham! While designing clothes and having a market stall, she began her A-levels and started writing. She now has a column called French Mistress in the Sunday Times and writes for publications such as the Daily Mail and Conde Nast Traveller. She is married with five children and lives in the foothills of Languedoc's Black Mountains.
