Description


Based on Stephen Clarke's own experiences and with names changed to "avoid embarrassment, possible legal action, and to prevent the author's legs being broken by someone in a Yves Saint Laurent suit," A Year in the Merde provides perfect entertainment for Francophiles and Francophobes alike.

Praise for A Year in the Merde…


"Highly entertaining…Clarke renders the flavor of life in Paris impeccably."--Washington Post

"Call him the anti-Mayle. Stephen Clarke is acerbic, insulting, un-PC and mostly hilarious."--San Francisco Chronicle.

"The antidote to Peter Mayle, this 'almost-true memoir' will appeal equally to Francophobes and Francophiles."--New York Post (4 stars)

"The book is laugh-out-loud hilarious. Like the best of British comedy, Merde is a comedy of errors…[with] great interlingual puns, a vivacious spirit and a playful attitude about the absurdities of a foreign culture."--Rocky Mountain News

"Combines the gaffes of Bridget Jones with the boldness of James Bond… Clarke's sharp eye for detail and relentless wit make even the most quotidian task seem surreal."--Publishers Weekly
