Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

This is Georges first published book and it is a cracker. A wonderful subject so beautifully handled. His love and affection for his adopted country shines through the self deprecating and irony of the situations he finds himself in. George is the male equivalent of Lucille Ball. Fabulous... keep them coming George. --French World News

I couldn't put it down... --Captain Hook

Quite simply the funniest books about real life in real France I have ever read... --W. Shakesaspeare

Présentation de l'éditeur

The first book in the best-selling Mill of the Flea series, relating the often farcical and always entertaining adventures of the author and his wife as they attempt to make a new life in rural France. Totally unlike any other book in the genre.
In this hilarious collection of cautionary tales and anecdotes, George East discusses all the delights and drawbacks of finding, buying and restoring French property.
Significantly subtitled 'A Year in Purgatory', Home & Dry in France follows the initial adventures of our innocents abroad en route to their 18th-century water mill in the heart of the magical Cotentin peninsula.
If you've ever dreamed of the delights of owning a picturesque property across the channel, you'll find this book required reading.
If you are an armchair adventurer and just after a rattling good read, your search is over...

HASH(0x91757960) étoiles sur 5 A tale of two houses 17 juillet 2003
Par Keith Kellett - Publié sur
Format: Broché
`Who'd want to read about us buying a place in France' asked George East, when his wife suggested keeping a diary of their doings to while away the time on the numerous necessary ferry crossings. `It's not as if anything particularly interesting has happened!'
But, write it, he did, and the result is `Home & Dry in France', sub-titled `A Year in Purgatory'. Getting it published, though, was another story, too long to tell here!
At the outset, George tells us his book is not to be regarded as a primer for those wishing to buy property in France ... and, in fact, claims at one point it's a work of fiction (`This is a true story ... only the facts have been changed (1970s `Dragnet' spoof))
With a wicked and wry humour, George leads us through the minefield of acquiring not one but two properties, introducing us to various engaging characters met along the way. It's an odd paradox, but the Normandy bocage, where the story is set, is less than an hour's drive from the busy ferry port of Cherbourg ... but, to most British, it's undiscovered country, in many places, even a step back in time.
Throughout, the stories are peppered liberally with advice for the would-be buyer, as well as `cautionary tales' which I read with a certain amount of schadenfreude and more than a few chuckles.
The `Year in Purgatory' ends with Monsieur and Madame East installed in a ruined watermill Moulin de la Puce (Mill of the Flea) which became their home for many years. But, they aren't `Home and Dry' yet. There's a lot of work to do, more places to visit and more characters to meet. Read this and enjoy ... and rejoice that there's more to come.

HASH(0x917579b4) étoiles sur 5 Home and Dry in France 19 mai 2003
Par Pendragon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a witty tale of the difficulties encountered when buying a home in a foreign country. The characters are full of life and somewhat quirky. The story is poignantly funny. A 'must read' for anyone contemplating a house in France, or someone who just has an interest in France and the French.
An excellent book.

Three writers can make me laugh out loud on public transport (which, in itself, is no laughing matter - especially whilst travelling alone) but Bill Bryson and Alan Bennett make me laugh 'til the tears roll. So too can George East. More please George.
