About this book
Second volume of the author's memoir of life in rural France, following "C'est La Folie", and based on his popular Saturday "Telegraph" column. Just as he is settling down to the single life of a contented rustic hermit, an unlikely romance begins, and he contemplates the prospect of sharing his French life with a paid-up urban girl with a dedicated shoe buying habit.
Having spent two years alone in France, doing his best to survive in a foreign land, and failing miserably to woo a dishy French copine, Michael Wright has everything he ever wanted. Yet he is still alone and - in a moment of rare self-knowledge - decides that the only way to find the girl of his dreams is to stop looking for her.
