A compendium of Gallic oddities, Bof! takes the oyster that is France and concentrates firmly on the grit. Essential reading for anyone struggling to learn French or understand the French. This book won't tell you what you should see, do or know in France. In fact it skips all the boring text book stuff. But if you've ever wondered why your school French is met with baffled incomprehension, then Bof! holds the answer. It takes you on a rollercoaster ride through what the French really think and say, what they like and dislike, their habits, food, fashion, humour, sport and language and brings it all to life with quirky pen and ink drawings. You'll learn essential French survival skills: how to out savvy a Parisian waiter, how to match the French insult for insult, how to run the car off plonk, how to fart higher than your bum, how to behave like a French fashion designer, a hot rabbit, a big vegetable or a badly licked bear.
