Paris in My Springtime

Paris in My Springtime

A novel by

"'Paris in my Springtime' tells the story of what happened to a naive, inexperienced young man forced through illness at the start of medical school in 1963 to take an unplanned gap year. The colourful characters he meets and the unusual situations he finds himself in form the framework of this story, laced with amusing anecdotes that will keep you laughing. Highly entertaining." - Living France magazine
Is this a novel? Or is it autobiography? The reader must decide. (Not easy...even the author's father got it wrong!)
While sorting through old boxes the author finds a diary he kept during a stay in Paris in the 1960s. He had started medical school but been taken ill and had to abandon his studies for a while. He had two choices: a temporary job driving a fish delivery van or a trip to Paris. After much thought (lasting nearly a second) he chose to go to Paris. And this the story of what happened. Or is it? Who cares? As This England magazine says `Coleman is a very funny writer' and that is probably all that really matters. Vernon Coleman is a qualified doctor who has earned his living as a professional author for over 30 years. His books have sold over two million copies in hardback and paperback in the UK and been translated into 24 languages. An award winning film was made of his novel Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War and he is the author of the hugely popular bestselling Bilbury series. His bestselling medical books include Bodypower (the subject of three TV series and one radio series), How To Stop Your Doctor Killing You and many more. He is the author of over 100 books and a list of books available in kindle form is available on his Amazon Author listing.
