New Kindle book from the author of La Vie en Straw

Selected journalism from a French straw-bale grand design

Mark Sampson is a writer based in south-west France. Born in London, reared in Belfast and matured in Brighton and Sheffield, he moved to France with his family in 1995.  The construction of his family's straw-bale house in France was featured in Channel 4's Grand Designs Abroad.

After more than 20 years of living in France, Mark knows this beautiful country and its people pretty well. Throughout his tenure in a foreign land, he has written for journals such as The Times and France Magazine on everything from village life and truffle hunting to an Anglicised Breton wedding and the popular presenter of Grand Designs.

For the first time he has collected his journalistic pieces to complement his selection of blogs published as La Vie en Straw. If ever you've wondered what it's like to drive down one of the world's most beautiful motorways or to fill in a French income tax return, look no further than this multifarious volume.
