Peter Mayle may have spent a year in Provence, but Harriet Welty Rochefort writes from the experience of over twenty years in Paris. From a small town in Iowa to the City of Lights, Harriet did what so many dream of - she picked up her entire life and moved to France - permanently. But it has not been twenty years of fun and games, Harriet has endured her share of cultural bumps, bruises, and psychic adjustments. In "French Toast", Harriet makes sense of Parisians and their ever-so-French thoughts on food, money, sex, love, marriage, manners, and much, much more.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"On the subject of French ways and habits, "French Toast" remains the gold standard. A classic!"--Diane Johnson, author of "Le Divorce"

"A book that goes beyond the cliches of fashion folly, exploring instead the nooks and crannies of French society and the French psyche with aplomb and great humor.... "French Toast" is gem of a book ... A perennial must-read manifesto for travelers and expats alike. "
--Debra Ollivier, author of ""Entre Nous""

"When someone calls you "mon cher ami," does in literally mean 'dear friend', or, as is often the case, 'drop dead'?.. Should you shower before making love?... Rochefort offers answers by the score. Even longtime foreign residents of France have become grateful readers.... Wise and devastatingly funny." --"The Los Angeles Times"""

"Great fun to read and over too soon." -"Library Journal"

""French Toast" includes the most delightful barbs at France's subtle but deep-rooted codes of behavior." --Leslie Caron, star of "An American in Paris, Gigi, "and" Lili"
