'What elevates this book from the ranks... is Wright's gentle humour and his ability to create a vivid impression of his literal and emotional journey..with such wit and perception' "Sunday Telegraph"
One day in late summer, Michael Wright gave up his comfortable South London existence and, with only his long-suffering cat for company, set out to begin a new life. His destination was 'La Folie', a dilapidated 15th century farmhouse in need of love and renovation in the heart of rural France.
