The French House by Don Wallace

The French House

This is a charming little memoir about the author’s experiences of buying a run-down French house on the island of Belle Isle.  It’s exactly the kind of “travel” book I enjoy.  From the tales of the Porsche-driving plumber, neighbors who  drive over their rose bushes and accidentally giving their toddler an ample supply of hard apple cider (thinking it was non-alcoholic), Wallace’s memoir is amusing and feeds my curiosity about what life on a French island might be like.
