About the Author

George East has been wandering and wondering through France it seems, for ever and writing about it for more than twenty years. His love affair started as a young boy on a cultural exchange and has lasted, in spite of some of his experiences, in the country we love to love or hate. But love is not blind in this case. George tells it how it is in his tales of France, the french and life in what some would say is an idyllic place to be. According to thousands of George East enthusiasts and fans, the oversized author's style is a mixture of Bill Bryson, Eric 'A Short Walk In The Hindu Kush' Newby and P G Woodhouse, while his antics resemble more closely the worst excesses of Tony Hancock meets Frank Spencer and Basil Fawlty. As a leading critic once said, 'George does spectacular failure very well'. In his past George has enjoyed a diverse career path which includes pickled onion manufacturer, private detective, night club bouncer, demolition engineer, seamstress and the only human professional bed-tester in history. An eventful spell as a publican won him the title of Worst Landlord in Britain for two consecutive years. George has also enjoyed a long writing career, which started when sending copy for young girls' photo story comics and at the other end of the spectrum racey mens' mags. George and his wife Donella now live and travel in France and Southern England as the author gathers material for new books and concentrates on his quests to discover 'the True Meaning of Life' while meeting unusual people and going down the pub -
