9781906042325: Xenophobe's Guide to the French

"France is a country that eats, drinks and breathes philosophy. There is not a farmer, fisherman, waiter, car-worker, shop assistant or housewife who isn't a closet Diderot or Descartes, a Saint-Simon or a Sartre."
"French politicians look smart because power itself is chic, attractive, seductive, and one should dress to look the part. The French electorate would never allow any government to intervene in their lives if it were shabbily dressed."

About the Author:

Nick Yapp is the author of 100 Days in Photographs and The American Millennium.

Review:

"Short, aphoristic, seriously funny, not that xenophobic and almost entirely apt guide, perfect homework for the fortunate on ferry or plane."  —The Observer

"La France comes to life in this tongue-in-cheek pocket guide, a textual romp that disguises a lot of information about France with an irreverent brush."  —Southern Cross
