The Secret Life of France

The Secret Life of France

Author(s): Lucy Wadham

Location(s): France

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Modern

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.
