"A well-told, highly accessible history of the French language that leads to a spirited discussion of the prospects for French in an increasingly English-dominated world." --William Grimes, The New York Times "Exceptionally told, a celebration of the lasting influence of la fran aise." --Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review "Excellent...An engaging and well-conceived book. Highly recommended." --Library Journal "Fascinating . . . a fresh approach to both the language and the history. It combines a detailed and learned grasp of the evolution of the language in various parts of the Francophone world with a personal touch." --Mary Ann Caws, Distinguished Professor of French, English, and Comparative Literature, City University of New York "The Story of French hums with the spirit of a novel, the heart of a travel book and the brains of an essay. Jean-Beno t Nadeau and Julie Barlow have seized an ambitious theme and made it fascinating and easy to read. With a deft and energetic touch, the authors offer personality and wisdom in this wonderful tribute to the French language and the people who speak it." --Lawrence Hill, Author of Any Known Blood
