Product description

Review

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

About the Author

GEORGE EAST has enjoyed a diverse career path which includes pickled onion manufacturer, private detective, night club bouncer, demolition engineer and seamstress. The only professional bed-tester in history, in his eventful spell as a publican he won the title of Worst Landlord in Britain for two consecutive years. George and his long-suffering wife Donella now live and travel in France and England as the author gathers material for new books and concentrates on his quests to discover the True Meaning of Life while meeting unusual people and going down the pub… George's up-to-date blog can be found on his website about France at george-east.net
