Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Knorr (The Grown-Up's Guide to Running Away from Home) moved to France after her children were grown and her husband retired. In this guide, she imparts advice and information on almost all aspects of French life, with sections on visas, vines, and vacations as well as chapters on banking, shopping, transportation, healthcare, wills, finding a job, social occasions, and how to set up your telephone, electricity, and much more. With useful bits of vocabulary to go with each topic, this is an extremely useful guide for the person who intends to live in France for an extended period or even a brief time. Don't leave home without it! For all libraries.-George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, PA
