Inhaltsangabe: This first 'travel fusion' book of a series launches an exciting new genre in general literature. 'French Impressions - Brittany' contains everything you have ever wanted to know about that fascinating region - and more - in a book. Read about the crepe throwing champion of all France, the celtic history of the region, the myths and legends and the surprising links Brittany has with Welsh, Irish and Scotts culture and the English language. Learn here also what it is like to live among the people who are geographically as well as culturally light years apart from the rest of France with their unique language, cuisine and views on Life. Readers who love this hugely popular author's unique 'take' on France, the French and their sometimes funny little ways will adore this latest encounter with our nearest continental neighbours... to say nothing of a cavalcade of nutty Brit expats and native Bretons. The book also includes some classic Breton recipes and reviews of more than 100 Breton towns and tourist attractions. In short, it is Brittany in a book....
Those who have come to love George's 'Home Thoughts from Abroad' column in French Property News will not be disappointed by French Impressions: Brittany. He has that happy knack of conveying genuine insight into a region, fascinating facts and the sense of adventure and discovery that's so important in all good travel writing. But it's all written in a way that is laugh-out-loud funny. He reviews more than a hundred Breton towns and shares dozens of regional recipes; the classics as well as some more intriguing and esoteric dishes that he has discovered cider apple and blackberry atomic chutney anyone? Whats more, there are handy sections at the back with useful online contacts and a whistle-stop tour of beautiful Breton towns and villages that George visited on his travels. There's information and inspiration aplenty in this book, and above all, it's a thoroughly entertaining read. --French Property News.
Salut mon vieux pote (old fellow). I've received your last book and after reading the 100 first pages I can say that it's an unusal touristic book, sure! It's far from the eden vision some foreigners could have about France, but absolutly the truth. I really enjoy it even if I feel concerned about what you've written. And I must say that's the first time I can understand 95% of your book (thanks to my MBA course last year)! Your anylisis about Bretons and French is particularly fine and funny! For this Frenchman, your french impressions are impressive! --Philippe Boulet - CA Bank Manager
Following are some of Georges many fan letters from very happy customers. Read on and see what real readers say. - ************** I just picked up your book, and now I can't put it down. I couldn't wait to finish it, before telling you how much I am enjoying your tales of rural France. For 15 years I visited my father and his partner in their rustic and charming home in the Ariege. He died two years ago this Saturday, and I am so sorry I won't be able to send him your book. He would have loved it. It's a wonderful coincidence to have found your work now, when I'm missing him the most. It's like listening to his favourite tales, but with new characters, new twists and turns. Apparently France is profond, whether North or South! --Sandy Smith (Reading, Berkshire)*********I took my children to the local library last week and for the first time in forever was able to get a book for myself. I chose yours. Doubtful as to whether I would have time to read it as the busy mother of 3 and 4 year old girls, and working and housework etc etc, I luckily??? got the flu and forced some down time. With the fire roaring and in between reading books to the kids I have savoured your book. It was delicious, and a wonderful escape. - Rebecca Cavarra (a proud Aussie housewife). ******************. My husband and I have so enjoyed your books. We have a holiday home at Montalivet but have now found we have to travel via Brittany ferries just to collect your charming books. Keep writing George. --Julia Welsh
