While living in Paris he spent a great deal of time in cafes observing life. He fell in love with a much-older, very married French woman. And he met many unusual people (French, English and American) and heard their life stories.Telling the nationalities apart is simple. The French are all wise, witty and happy because they KNOW HOW TO LIVE LIFE. The English are dour and naive. The Americans are either fat, obnoxious tourists (the norm) or wealthy, slightly shady eccentrics.
The author has lived in Paris part-time for years. He admires the French and their way of life and probably has as much insight into their way of thinking as is possible for a foreigner. The book doesn't read like a journal and I'm hard pressed to believe that so many older people would confide their inner-most thoughts to a teenager or that an 18-year-old boy would listen if they did. But I could be wrong and (as one of the characters says) "if you aren't sure whether or not a thing is true, it might as well BE true."
This is well-written and witty and will certainly be enjoyed by any reader who's interested in France and French culture
