From Paradis to Perdition – The much-awaited sequel to the bestselling Pensioners in Paradis has arrived!

A Year in France

The acclaimed first book in the series, Pensioners in Paradis, was written entirely from the point of view of the woman in the house. So, it is only fair to give Him Indoors his say on a self-deprecating English couple’s life in France. Be prepared, therefore, for an irreverent account, written in his own dry, inimitable style, as he recounts, month by month, how their French dream fell apart.

What on earth could have happened to change their joie de vivre and their love of all things French? Did they hit that je ne sais quoi that essentially divides the French from the English? Or was it that dratted Brexit referendum that threw a spanner in the works? We all want to know!

So, draw up a chair, pour a tot of whisky or a glass of (French!) wine, and enjoy the fine art of self-disparagement as all will be revealed.
