A year down under, then a career in accountancy

A young Frenchman whom Dalrymple knows has just returned from a year in Australia. For many young French people, writes Dalrymple,

a year in Australia has become almost a rite de passage, their favoured destination for such a rite.

The young Frenchman

did not regret his choice before he knuckled down to the serious business of having a career that he did not really want and would not really enjoy. Such is the fate, perhaps, of most of mankind, or at least of educated mankind.
