Every Frenchman Has One

In 1953, Olivia de Havilland—already an Academy Award-winning actress became the heroine of her own real-life love affair. She married a Frenchman, moved to Paris, and planted her standard on the Left Bank of the River Seine. The memoir is a lighthearted account Olivia de Havilland's often amusing attempts to understand and adapt to French life, manners, and customs. In the book, de Havilland writes about French traffic, French maids, French salesladies, French holidays, French law, French doctors, and the French language—all with good humor and affection.
