But Poirier said the ex-First Lady also appears as a “scorned woman…full of revenge and full of herself” by dishing the details on Hollande’s affair with actress Julie Gayet. Poirier also said the book “reads like a cheap romance” and was “an embarrassment for a former Paris Match literary critic.” She added that French political commentators are not taking well to another invasion of the president’s privacy and ” are clearly showing signs of farce fatigue.”
