An essential guide... the French will complain.' Andrew Neil'The French are savvy, sophisticated, elegant - Right? Wrong! The French:…* lecture the world about haute cuisine yet they eat more McDonald's hamburgers than anywhere else in the world; * roll their eyes at foreign culture even as I is their most watched TV programme; * pretend to be literary even as Fifty Shades of Gray is France’s best-selling book, ever. In 2000, Jonathan Miller moved to France. Soon he discovered the hilarious truth. The French live in a feverish state of fantasy. People are paid to pretend to work, pretend to strike, and generally think work causes depression and suicide. Dental hygienists are illegal, yet the French exchange a staggering 184 billion kisses every year. While preaching liberté, the State forbids everything, is run by one school’s alumni, messes up over two thirds of the economy. It goes on....Meet the real French, and laugh!
