Englishman Paul West is living the Parisian dream, and doing his best not to annoy the French. But recently things have been going très wrong: His apartment is so small that he has to cut his baguettes in two to fit them in the kitchen. His research into authentic French cuisine is about to cause a national strike. His Parisian business partner is determined to close their tea-room. And thinks that sexually harassing his female employees is a basic human right. And Paul's gorgeous ex-girlfriend seems to be stalking him.
Threatened with eviction, unemployment and bankruptcy, Paul realises that his personal merde factor is about to hit the fan....
"The tone is as ever gentle; the humour more hit than miss. It’s lighter than a good millefeuille, and just as moreish." (FT)
"Some scenarios are so cringe worthy you suspect they may have happened in real life...Paul, the outsider in a deeply patriotic nation, is more than believable with his candour and humour." (Press Association )
“The prime reason to return to this series is that the books still make you laugh... this has a decent level of humour generally throughout... I liked Mr Clarke's books and sense of humour, and especially his intelligent whimsy, before now, and I found both in this latest volume. I must thank the publishers for my review copy.” (The Bookbag)
"Like the best of Brit farce it all chuckles along to a hilarious but happy conclusion." (4 Stars, Weekend Sport)
