DENIS BOYLES is the author of African Lives, Man Eaters Motel and A Man’s Life: The Complete Instructions, among other books. His work has appeared in Esquire, Playboy, the Washington Post, the New York Times and other publications. He currently writes the Euro-Press Review column for National Review Online and contributes to various magazines and journals.
In this bitingly funny and insightful polemic, Boyles, using his knowledge of history and his shrewd eye for current events, examines the internal crises—a falling birth rate, an expanding Muslim minority, economic stagnation, a lessening of international prestige— that have changed the personality of what was once la belle France, transforming it into a nation afflicted with status anxiety.
