Fragile Glory: A Portrait of France and the French Reviews
Before my 2006 trip to France, the Rick Steves (Travels in Europe) website listed this book as a good insight into the French view life. It was an invaluable aid in understanding the wonderful French culture. I'm glad I read it before my visit.
I inherited this book from the library of a dearly departed friend, who had lived in France and who loved the French culture. As bureau chief of theThe New York Timesin Paris, Bernstein leads the reader through all aspects of life in France, from politics, to cuisine, style, attitudes, and personal philosophies of the French. Though references to political figures reflect the author's time there in the eighties, he presents a panorama of the country and the people with both honesty and humor.
