Back to school in France coincides with the Rentrée littéraire, which is when most new books are released. It’s a vibrant period with events, signings, speeches and readers go wild with purchases, discovering new writers. In that spirit, I’m beginning a countdown to the rentrée.
There are about as many chapters in French License as there are days ’til then. So, each day, I’ll give you a peek into the contents of a chapter. This should help new readers discover the book. The sample only covers the first 5% of the book, the set-up. More of the juicy bits happen in the middle, then building to a climax at the end. The 42 chapters cover a decade of foibles. The countdown hors d’oeuvres should help you decide if you’d like a feast of French License on your table.
