Every Frenchman Has One by Olivia deHavilland

 A re-release of a book written in the 1950s by one of classic Hollywood's favorite film stars? Yes please. 
I wasn't sure what to expect with the book, but it is mild compared to what is written today. Olivia writes in almost a prose style and her words are to be read slowly and to be savored. This book is a delight. I love looking at France through her eyes. Her honesty probably wouldn't hold up well to today's age of political correctness where we have to be nice to everyone or risk offending them. This book is her truthful observations and I love it. It's a small volume but holds up well. Fun getting to know her in these pages.
Olivia just celebrated her 100th birthday! Happy birthday Olivia....wherever you are!
