Informal French Expressions and their English Equivalents

Gunnar has published a book on which he has been working for many years. The book’s appeal is that the register (informal, slang, vulgar…) of many of the French expressions are translated into English terms of the same register. This book is indispensable for anyone wanting to speak like native French speakers and for anyone in need of an unconventional dictionary for translation work. The book can be found here:

This book is the selection for August, but I kept thinking it was coming up in July and I wanted to get a head start on it, so I started listening to the audiobook some weeks back and just finished it a few days ago.
