KIRKUS REVIEW

Ten years after his war experiences in France, Liebling revisits Normandy, the one part of France, besides Paris, which he has always favored. Attracted by its uniqueness and its chasteness which he attributes to its lack of spectacular tourist attractions, he has frequently been drawn to the villages and countryside whose chief produce are cognac-making, apples and fish. Liebling writes of the people, the country, the food, blending incisive humor, revealing comparisons, and history. This collection of essays manifest that highly entertaining and readable style which have made both Liebling's books and his articles for the New Yorker so markedly popular. Both as a travelogue and an interlude with a sharply perceptive intelligence, this unsentimental journey through Normandy is outstandingly rich and amusing.
