If anyone should know his onions about France and the French, it's George East. His eight books and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles and TV and radio programmes on our nearest continental neighbours and their intriguing country have been enjoyed by millions. Now George has created a new type of travel book. For the first of a series exploring the regions of France, our hero took the advice of revered travel writer Louis Theroux and lived where he wrote about. The result is totally unlike any other sort of travel book.
For the past two years (well, nearly three) George Easts quest has been to write a book about Brittany, buy the perfect home and finally learn to speak the French properly. Well, George and his wife are still seeking that dream property, and the language-learning may still be a sore point. But after an epic 25,000 miles, more than 200 Breton towns and honing more than 120,000 words on the subject, French Impressions - Brittany is now published. Those who have come to love George's Home Thoughts from Abroad column in French Property News will not be disappointed by the 'Brittany in a book'. He has that happy knack of conveying genuine insight into a region, fascinating facts and the sense of adventure and discovery that's so importsant in all good travel writing. But it's all written in a way that is laugh-out-loud funny. He reviews more than a hundred Breton towns and shares dozens of regional recipes; the classics as well as some more intriguing and esoteric dishes that he has discovered - cider apple and blackberry atomic chutney anyone? Whats more, there are handy sections at the back with useful online contacts and a whistle-stop tour of beautiful Breton towns and villages that George visited on his travels. There's information and inspiration aplenty in this book, and above all, it's a thoroughly entertaining read. FPN
