“[A] breezy and engaging new paean to the French way of living and eating.” Publishers Weekly
“Author-narrator Mireille Guiliano’s enthusiasm is evident from the first few minutes of this short but informative treatise on oysters, which also includes stories about her friend Régis, a Parisian oysterman. Listeners can’t help but be charmed by Guiliano’s French accent and conversational approach to her performance.” AudioFile
