1 Clarke, Stephen A Year in the Merde
New York Bloomsbury 2005 1582345910 / 9781582345918 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Near Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First US Edition, First Printing. The book tells the story of Paul West, a 27 year old Brit brought to Paris by a French company to open a chain of British 'tea-rooms'. Soon enough he finds himself juggling a group of grumbling French employees, a treacherous Parisian boss, and a succession of lusty girlfriends, one of whom happens to be the boss's morally challenged daughter. He soon becomes immersed in the contradictions of French culture and the book reveals the secrets of how to get the best out of the grumpiest waiter, how to survive a French business meeting, and how not to buy a house in the French countryside. An hilarious, almost true tale, and is for anyone who cannot decide whether they love or love to hate the French, and an antidote to 'A Year in Provence'.
