Who's your favorite french author? Louis-Ferdinand Celine? Marcel Proust? Charles Baudelaire? W. Sommerset Maughm? (oh yeah! I went there) Jean-Paul Sartre? (what's with the french and all these fuckin' hyphens?) Albert Camus? You know Miller spent a considerable amount of time there. But then again so did Orwell. Kerouac was french-canadian...it has a hyphen, does that count?
