Revue de presse

ALWAYS FUNNY and ironic and mostly hilarious stories of Geos life in France can be read about in all his Mill of the Flea series of books. FRENCH LESSONS is no exception. The most outrageous plotline, whether absolutely true or not, is breathtakingly uproariously comical, though the outcome in parts is mixed very deftly with poignancy. George is definitely up there with all the top story tellers of our age. And grossly overlooked.... FPN; --FPN-French Property News

This is a funny, lively account of Normandy life... SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE A sad but funny end to a wonderful series of French anecdotal life... Manche Today; --Manche Today

Seriously, I cannot be serious enough about this wonderfully funny and yet at the same time poignant book which has one laughing enough to burst the seams of your pants one minute and then crying at the next. George is obviously a very funny man and his writing is near genius. Cleverly structured and beautiful prose - and a jolly good story to boot...A thouroughly enjoyable read....Southern Weekly Times; --Southern Weekly Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

He's back- and this time its really serious! Failed rock legend, pickled onion manufacturer, air hostess and euro-entrepreneur George East takes us through another eventful year of his doomed attempts to make a living out of living in rural France. Fleeing from the Mill of the Flea with creditors in hot pursuit, our hero and his long-suffering wife arrive at a rambling manor-house on the vast and brooding stretches of the Normandy marshlands. The cunning plan is to set up a fox sanctuary, chicken farm and arts & crafts commune for the creatively challenged, but the Easts new home soon reveals its grim secrets. A lifeline is offered by a stranger with a scheme to bring the delights of the Great British Pub to homesick expatriates. The George Inn (Sometimes) will be the first of a chain of hugely successful anglo-pubs stretching from Normandy to Nice and beyond. At least, thats the idea. As the clock ticks towards opening time and final financial meltdown for the ultimate innocent abroad, we encounter another host of improbable-and frankly sometimes unbelievable- characters and situations. The amazing thing is that any of it is true. Will George find fame, fortune and contentment, or has this modern Micawber taken his final drink in the Last Chance Saloon?

This is the last in the Mill of the Flea series and by far the most poignant and revealing. Beset by financial problems but determined to forge on as the best known British ex-pats in rural Normandy, the Easts make the heart-breaking decision to sell their beloved mill-turned-homestead (La Puce) and buy a large old manor house on the edge of a vast marsh. The size of the house will (with some modernization) allow them to rent accommodations to vacationing Brits.

Well, that's the plan, anyway. Like all George's schemes, it's bold in outline and vague in details. In all fairness to George, some problems arise from the famous French bureaucracy and some from the lesser known advantages (official and unofficial) enjoyed by French natives when they are doing battle with non-natives. In a head-to-head between a native and an ex-pat, the decision will ALWAYS be made in favor of the native, regardless of the facts of the case. C'est les normes.

It spite of disappointments, it's a funny and upbeat book. George is the kinda guy who would crack up the guards on the way to his execution (and he's come close a few times.) He also has his priorities straight. He and his beloved Donella are a strong team and as long as they have each other, external circumstances can be dealt with. No matter where they hang their hats, Donella will surround herself with animals (domestic and otherwise) and George will find off-beat, entertaining characters to drink with and (hopefully) write about.

This author writes some of the best humor I've ever read and I can even re-read his books with great enjoyment. He writes fiction now and I hope that prospers and pays the bills, but I also hope he keeps us up to date on the progress (or non-progress) of all of his ex-pat friends living in France. After all, many of them relocated on the basis of his books. The least he can do is keep telling their stories.

This is a story of how a couple move to France and learn to get along. Luckily one speaks some of the language. Interesting story.
