Prospective readers ask “It’s not all about getting a driver’s license, is it?” No, Virginie, the book French License is about my adventures in France, with bureaucracy as a backdrop. Proof: here we are at chapter 17, Driver’s Ed signup, and I’ve only just begun.
A lot happened before I bit the bullet. What led me to the straight and narrow? The ‘i’ word. Most Americans detest it, and the French love it most of all.
My hope is that all the ludicrousness before, during and after shines through, making for an entertaining read. There are figures to surprise you, characters to chuckle at, and a quest to complete. Won’t you join me?
