A Year in the Merde
by Stephan Clarke
High culture and haute sophistication aside, if you’re looking for a good read with an unrestrained sense of humor, Stephen Clarke serves it up. Here, Paris exceeds the romantic, elegant, and artistic connotations and stands forth, unabashedly, in all her colors. From dog “merde” on the sidewalks to French cuisine to foreign faux-pas, A Year in the Merde introduces you to a funnier, friskier France.
