    Three weeks into our hen ownership and there wasn't a single egg, there was nothing. Natalie's theory for this was that they were bored. Can hens be bored? Really? They're hens for Pete's sake; do they need to be stretched intellectually before they produce any eggs? What am I suppose to do, read them Chomsky? Comedian, mod and professional grump Ian Moore has had enough. Tired of being unable to park anywhere near his cramped house in a noisy town he doesn't like, he hatches a plan to move his wife and young son to a remote corner of the Loire Valley in search of serenity and space. Several tears later, Ian finds himself up to his neck in bilingual offspring, feral cats, promiscuous horses, dysfunctional spaniels and needy hens; he's wrestling with electric fences, a foreign language, a mountain of animal waste and a wife who collects livestock like there's a biblical flood on the horizon, all while trying not dirty his loafers. But despite the ups, downs and increasing demands of Ian's showbiz career, the Moore family persevere in true Brit style to create a unique, colourful and ultimately rewarding life in their new homea la campagne and a la mod!


    AUTHOR: Ian Moore is a stand-up comedian in the UK and a husband, father of three boys, farmhand and chutney maker in France. He is a mod in both walks of life and most of his time is spent travelling grumpily between the two.
