French Tales is a collection of twenty-two translated stories associated with the twenty-two regions of France. The book, which includes both well-known and little-known writers, for example Prosper M--eacute--;rim--eacute--;e in the nineteenth century and Anne-Marie Garat in the twenty-first, affords readers a panoramic view of French society and culture, reflecting, as it does, its variety and diversity from Brittany to Corsica.

Writers include among others Maupassant, Zola, Annie Saumont, Marcel Aym--eacute--;, Didier Daeninckx and Stephane --Eacute--;mond. The subject-matter ranges from stories about marriage, the First World War and homelessness to house-buying, childhood and honour-killing.

Following the model of Paris Tales, also translated by Helen Constantine, each story is illustrated with a striking photograph and there is a map indicating the position of the French regions. There is an introduction and notes to accompany the stories and a selection of Further Reading. The book will appeal to people who love travelling or are armchair travellers, as much as to those who love France and things French.
