The Bonjour Effect: The Secret Codes of French Conversation Revealed, the latest book on French language and culture from past ICWA Fellows Julie Barlow and Jean-Benoît Nadeau received a glowing review in The New York Times Book Review this week. Molly Young writes that The Bonjour Effect, the latest of Barlow and Nadeau’s several books on France and the French language, “begins as a study of conversation [and] becomes a study of national character.” In addition to Barlow and Nadeau’s keen insights, Young points out the authors’ charming prose, enthusiasm for their subject, and years of experience in of France, which include their ICWA Fellowship.
