“How could one become French,” could have been written Montesquieu in heels. Emma Vandore, a Scottish reporter for Bloomberg News, covers French politics. She tells with humour what happens in the corridors of power. Chirac flirts with her, Villepin is courteous with her when she tries to initiate him to British food, this Bridget Jones of the media gives an acidulous account of our way of doing things. To savour.
