|Written by: Jacqui Brown|
I recently read two books from Andy Frazier (one straight after the other), ‘A Parrot in My Soup’ and ‘Who the Heck is Auntie Florette?’ They are both a collection of snippets of Andy’s life in South West France and both make for enjoyable, easy reading. Andy has a great sense of humour, maybe not to everyone’s taste (think Clarksonesque), but certainly to mine (and Ade’s). Ade got so fed up of me chuckling away and constantly reading bits out to him that he decided to read them too and it is not often we have the same taste in books.
Despite him covering as many lows as highs in his life, I found both books to be very entertaining. They are extracts of a column he writes, so written very much like a blog, which means you are carried along in Andy’s world (which often extends outside of France too), always wanting to know what comes next. It was great having the second book to carry on after the first, but I was then left a little bereft when I finished, so hopefully it won’t be too long before he releases another one. Although he does have plenty of other titles to keep me going!
