Talk To The Snail
by Stephen Clarke
In his new book, Stephen Clarke provides a very apt and amusing aid for appreciating the French. Chapters are commandments such as ‘thou shalt be wrong (if you’re not French), ‘thou shalt speak French’, ‘thou shalt not be served’ and ‘thou shalt be polite (and simultaneously rude)’.
Other information includes how to pronounce French swear words and survive driving in France.
This book of advice, based on Clarke’s experience of living in France for the past 12 years, is just as funny as his previous two books, ‘A Year in the Merde’ and ‘Merde Actually’, both of which have become international best sellers.
