The Secret Life of France
The Secret Life of France by Lucy Wadham is a funny, personal account of everything you wanted to know about France and French life but were too afraid to ask – from history and culture to sex and politics, especially the diminutive former president, Nicolas Sarkozy.

At the age of eighteen Lucy Wadham ran away from English boys and into the arms of a Frenchman. Twenty-five years later, having married in a French Catholic Church, put her children through the French educational system and divorced in a French court of law, Wadham is perfectly placed to explore the differences between Britain and France.
Using both her personal experiences and the lessons of French history and culture, she examines every aspect of French life – from sex and adultery to money, happiness, race and politics – in this funny and engrossing account of our most intriguing neighbour.
