Summary
"When journalist Lauren Collins moved to Geneva, Switzerland, she decided to learn French in order to be closer to her French husband and his family. Her hilarious and idiosyncratic memoir about the things we do for love is an exploration across cultures and history into how we learn languages, and what they say about who we are"--
Summary
An Anglophone American in London falls in love with a Frenchman and moves to Francophone Geneva, Switzerland. Once there, she decides to learn French; not only does she want to be able to buy things, but she wants to become closer to her new husband and, when the time comes, not be "a Borat of a mother." Chronicling her amusing adventures overseas and her attempts to communicate in a new tongue, talented New Yorker writer Lauren Collins serves up a funny, romantic, intelligent memoir. -- Description by Dawn Towery
