This book is her hilarious memoir of all that invariably does go wrong. From flooded basements, to busybody mayors and the famous French bureaucracy, it's all there. --U Magazine
If your job has gone from under you and the emigration boat is calling, this is a warming book to read -- showing that there are other realities and kinder places. --Lucille Redmond, Evening Herald
She spins a good yarn ... it is all well told and amusing although there is a serious story underneath it all --Books Ireland
As a manual for the would-be emigrant to la belle France, you could hardly find better. And for the many who dream of it, but know they are never likely to be able to do it, this is the ideal generator of dreams. Highly recommended. --Tuam Herald
About the Author
Liz Ryan is the author of seven novels and a freelance journalist for several publications. Originally a teacher from Dublin, she moved to France in 2001 in order to write fulltime, beat the traffic, become a pedant, go to the movies in the mornings, enjoy fabulous food, walk five thousand kilometres and spend a scandalous amount of time at the beach. Her next major project is to write a work of profound and startling wisdom, preferably dictated from the yacht of the producer who has secured the film rights to all her novels.
