"On the subject of French ways and habits, French Toast remains the gold standard. A classic!"--Diane Johnson, author of Le Divorce
"A book that goes beyond the clichés of fashion folly, exploring instead the nooks and crannies of French society and the French psyche with aplomb and great humor.... French Toast is gem of a book ... A perennial must-read manifesto for travelers and expats alike. "
--Debra Ollivier, author of Entre Nous
"When someone calls you mon cher ami, does in literally mean 'dear friend', or, as is often the case, 'drop dead'?.. Should you shower before making love?... Rochefort offers answers by the score. Even longtime foreign residents of France have become grateful readers…. Wise and devastatingly funny." --The Los Angeles Times
“Great fun to read and over too soon.” –Library Journal
"French Toast includes the most delightful barbs at France's subtle but deep-rooted codes of behavior." --Leslie Caron, star of An American in Paris, Gigi, and Lili
