Description du livre Marshall Pickering, 2016. État : New. Reflecting on the insights gleaned from 15 years' residence in the Languedoc, Jonathan Miller has produced an A-Z guide to 'the endless paradoxes of France'. Not only does he reveal that, in the home of liberte, dental hygienists are illegal and it is forbidden to practise shooting zombies, but also that, despite the country's reputation for haute cuisine, McDonald's operations in France are said to be the company's most successful.
