"Wise and devastatingly funny." --"The Los Angles Times"""French Toast "includes the most delightful barbs at France's subtle but deep-rooted codes of behavior...I read the book on the EuroStar between Paris and London and wished the train had not reached its tip speed of 300 kph!" --Leslie Caron, star of "An American in Paris, Gigi, "and "Lili""When someone calls you mon cher ami, does in literally mean 'dear friend', or, as is often the case, 'drop dead'?...Do you eat a round Camembert cheese the same way as a rectangular slab of Gruyere?...Should you shower before making love?...Rochefort offers answers by the score. Even longtime foreign residents of France have become grateful readers." --"The Los Angeles Times""[Rochefort] has been able to zero in on the joys, annoyances, frustrations, and the wonderful things about living in France and the French mentality that I've never been able to verbalize or put into perspective." --Marilyn August, "Associated Press "correspondent, Paris Bureau""French Toast "is not only extremely perceptive but also a delightful read and great fun." --Karl Horwitz, International President, "The New York Times Syndicate""Rochefort has clearly drawn from her Midwestern roots to come up with the consummate tall tale, which through color, imagination, and humor...paints a wacky and accurate picture of her life in Paris." --Sarah Colton, "American Wives of Europeans Newsletter"
