Product description


A funny, heart-warming, romantic and poignant tale of fitting in... will appeal to the latest generation of Francophiles dreaming of starting a new life in France. (Living France)

An entertaining tale of being a fish out of water in one of the most magical cities in the world. (Everything France)

Turnbull pulls no punches when it comes to describing life among her new countrymen and is refreshingly direct about her own failings as perceived by the Parisians. Required reading for anyone contemplating a spot of French leave. (Marie Claire)

Best, most seductive and funniest travel memoir this summer is Sarah Turnbull's Almost French, a novel twist on an Australian twenty-something back-packer's romantic liaison with a very French Frenchman and the howling differences in language, customs and expected behaviour. (What's On in London)
