La théorie du moustique

Today Nancy got her copies of La théorie du moustique, the French translation of The Rules of Survival.

While the titles are wildly different -- the French translates to "The theory of the mosquito" -- one presumes that the stories are the same.

I'm hoping to test that théorie by reading the French and English side by side. The idea is to learn some French in preparation for our belated "real" honeymoon in Paris this spring.

It will be interesting when we're over there to see what sort of buzz the book is getting, in terms of shelf space and mindshare of booksellers and librarians. So far, none of Nancy's books have taken off to any great extent overseas, but there's a first time for everything...
