In 'They Eat Horses, Don't They?', Piu Marie Eatwell explores the background to, and the contemporary evidence for, 45 myths and misconceptions about the French.
She finds that many of them are simply false, and that even those that are broadly true are rather more complicated than at first sight.
In the course of her thorough - and thoroughly entertaining - investigations, we discover there is more to our enigmatic Gallic neighbour than 365 types of cheese, and that the reality of modern French life is very different from the myths that we create about it.
