the truth about the French ( a book review)


Our love-hate relationship with the French
and all things French has inspired
writer Piu Marie Eatwell,
to write this fun book,
"They Eat Horses, Don't They?".

This book looks at the myths and stereotypes
that we associate with the French. 
Any Francophile can appreciate the subtle humor
and irony in this book. Eatwell looks at such things
as fashion, food, marriage, manners in
 the City of Light itself, Paris. 

I bought a few copies this year to give to some friends
who love anything French. 

This book is also loaded with fabulous quotes
by some famous French glitterati. 
Here are a couple of my favorites…
