Deep France Summary

Deep France: A writer's year in the Bearn by Celia Brayfield

Novelist Celia Brayfield had never lived more than a taxi ride from Soho, until one day she decided to take a year off. With the computer and the cats in the back of the car, and the blessing of her student daughter, she drove South until the dawn came up in the Bearn, the most romantic, remote and rustic region of France.

DEEP FRANCE is the diary of a writer's year in a tiny French village, trying to meet her deadlines when a good thunderstorm could blow out the computer and there were always artichokes to pick. It's a walk in the swashbuckling footsteps of The Three Musketeers and King Henri IV, full of funny and perceptive anecdotes about the year in which France had to face the euro, the World Cup and Le Pen's presidential campaign.

DEEP FRANCE is also about the love affair between the British - and the Australians, the New Zealanders, the South Africans, the Canadians, the Americans, the Irish, and even the Russians - and rural France. Grand passion or sad delusion? Mutual adoration or unrequited love?
