Rene and Me
The Fox of Cotentin. Mill of the Flea 2
The second book in the Mill of the Flea series, continues the often farcical and always entertaining adventures of the author and his wife as they attempt to make a new life in rural France. As financial disaster looms, Rene & Me sees the author and his wife moving across the Channel to try and live off the land and their wits in an isolated corner of Normandy. They arrive at the ruined Mill of the Flea and embark on a series of hare-brained schemes as they struggle to come to terms with a very different culture. Then an unlikely ally arrives in the shape of wily countryman Rene Ribet, who offers to become their guide and mentor for what proves to be an unforgettable year - Told in the inimitable style which has already won the author an army of followers, Rene & Me is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes moving and always captivating celebration of human nature, people and above all, life and living.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"When such experiences are presented by a raconteur of George East's stature, few people could fail to ignore all else until the book is devoured to the very last page..."
