A PIANO IN THE PYRENEES
BY TONY HAWKS
Review by Barb & Ron Kroll
A Piano in The Pyrenees
(Ebury Press) ISBN 9780091903336
To fulfill a lifelong ambition to build his idyllic home, find a soul mate and learn to play the piano, Tony Hawks buys a house in the French Pyrenees. His experiences illustrate the differences between the English and French cultures.
A Piano in The Pyrenees uses British humor to describe an Englishman's experiences encountering the French Pyrenees culture.
No images and one very simple, black and white map.
At a bingo game, Tony translates numbers from French to English too slowly, and erroneously declares himself a winner.
