This is the book I want to read next! Just read this description and maybe you would like to read it to:)
“Theodore Zeldin, the noted Oxford Scholar on French history, embarks on his personal journey through the history
of universal human relations. Illustrating his discussions on life with a variety of French females from all socio-economic backgrounds, Zeldin depicts their views on personal life experiences and on life itself brilliantly connecting their insights and concerns with past historical events and personalitites. This harmony of both past and present emphasizes how we all share life and it’s struggles
and concludes with the author’s insights into how we might shape a better life not only for ourselves but for the human family in general.”
I read about this book first at the lovely No Bourgeoisie blog.
