I inherited this book from the library of a dearly departed friend, who had lived in France and who loved the French culture. As bureau chief of the The New York Times in Paris, Bernstein leads the reader through all aspects of life in France, from politics, to cuisine, style, attitudes, and personal philosophies of the French. Though references to political figures reflect the author's time there in the eighties, he presents a panorama of the country and the people with both honesty and humor.
