How to Say “Fabulous!” in 8 Different Languages
About the Book
Gay tourism is booming—and with How to Say “Fabulous!” in 8 Different Languages, you’ll always know how to speak the native tongue. This hilarious phrase book features hundreds of outrageous phrases, all translated from English into French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
There are sections on Night Life (“Are there any gay bars around here?”), Shopping (“Those shoes! I must have those shoes!”), Opening Lines (“I am a flight attendant/choreographer/actor/owner of a greeting card store”), Dining Out (“You’ve had worse things in your mouth!”), Parting Glances (“I never meant to hurt you”), and much more.
With a hilarious mix of practical, impractical, bitchy, and often obscene phrases, How to Say “Fabulous!” in 8 Different Languages is the perfect companion for gay tourists and armchair travelers.
