Write-ups and reviews for The Chairfather book and tours.

FUSAC book corner for May 17: “A collection of quirky photos and odd but insightful snippets of conversations with the great French men and women who are buried in this historic cemetery. Joe is on a first name basis with them, informal, probing and a tad insolent.

I’m cracking up through the book!  It’s a totally fun and informative read!” -Adrian Leeds of Parler Paris

I read your French License book in 2018 before I moved from the US to France and found it most helpful. In fact, I keep it in my car and still use it as reference from time to time. ” -Stephen MCRAE
