Anne Trager loves France so much she has lived there for over a quarter of a century and just can t seem to leave. What keeps her there is a uniquely French mix of pleasure seeking and creativity. Well, that and the wine. In 2011, she woke up one morning and said, I just can t stand it anymore. There are way too many good books being written in France not reaching a broader audience. That s when she founded Le French Book to translate some of those books into English. The company s motto is If we love it, we translate it, and Anne loves crime fiction, mysteries and detective novels.Weldon is an assistant professor of political science at Purdue University.
