"Do you enjoy laughing while rekindling fond travel memories? You are going to love Uncorked because Paul Shore's wry wit and big heart will spark flashbacks of your own travel adventures. Shore's storytelling humorously celebrates the "uncorking" of many of France's most cherished traditions --- learning to play boules under the clandestine cover of darkness; cheese-plate etiquette; drinking before noon; and dodging exhaled cigarette smoke! Paul also uncovers personal awakenings about the value of following paths-less-travelled, and slowing down to smell-the-roses. All while, his self-deprecating humor and sincere respect for the value of traditions enable him to make friends and gain acceptance within a quirky foreign culture."--Provided by the publisher.
