Not exactly what comes to mind when you think of Provence and the French Riviera. Welcome to life in the French underbelly.In her first book, Helene tells the story of a year she spent in the slums of Marseille when just out of college and itching to do something useful and exciting. Sent to live at the more proletarian end of the French Riviera, Helene finds herself encountering illegal stowaways from Algeria, a rogue scientist on the lam from Hungary, a motley collection of vrais Marseillais who dont very much like foreigners, and not a few other characters. Helene takes you to the heart of the French ghetto and shows you its beauties and its perils.
