Talk to the Snail, by Stephen Clarke

Talk to the Snail book cover, Stephen Clarke

As the subtitle indicates, this book encompasses Clarke’s often snarky, usually humorous advice on how to best survive as a Brit/anglophone in France.

The chapter on language, in which he describes the conundra of the French u vs ou, and the facility for double-entendre that many French expressions enable, had me guffawing and snorting in an airport departure lounge.

Who would suce-pay such a reaction?
