I am a native of France, a retired French university professor living in the USA. I return to France every year, and love discovering new places I have not yet visited. I am interested in issues of bilingualism and expatriate identity. I enjoy good food, great books, and all kinds of music.
There is a part of me that even my closest American friends will never understand – The French part of me remains very opaque to my American friends, and only a French expat who has lived in the U.S. as long as I have can understand it.
