Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0091927528, Paperback)

The bestselling author of Fatty Batter is back with a hilarious tale of a Brit travelling through France in a quest for Gallic elan and savoir-faire. Will he go from being a scotch-egg eating English provincial to a champagne-sipping worldly sophisticate in the process?

As Michael Simkins hits middle-age, he takes up the challenge of broadening his horizons. He decides to improve himself in the same way English gentlemen lacking refined edges have for centuries: by learning from our more cultured French neighbours.
