    Stephen Clarke is the bestselling author of seven books of fiction and nonfiction that satirize the peculiarities of French culture. In 2004, he self-published A Year in the Merde, a comic novel skewering contemporary French society. The novel was an instant success and has led to numerous follow-ups, including Dial M for Merde (2008), 1,000 Years of Annoying the French (2010), and Paris Revealed (2011). After working as a journalist for a French press group for ten years, Paris-based Clarke now has a regular spot on French cable TV, poking fun at French culture.

    1000 Years of Annoying the French
    by Stephen Clarke

    Was the Battle of Hastings a French victory?

    Non! William the Conqueror was Norman and hated the French.

    Were the Brits really responsible for the death of Joan of Arc?

    Non! The French sentenced her to death for wearing trousers.

    Was the guillotine a French invention?

    Non! It was invented in Yorkshire.

    Ten centuries' worth of French historical 'facts' bite the dust as Stephen Clarke looks at what has really been going on since 1066...


    Paris Revealed: The Secret Life of a City
    by Stephen Clarke

    PARIS - one of the most visited cities in the world.

    BUT do you know ...

    Which is the most romantic spot to say 'je't'aime'? And the sexiest?

    Where to see fantastic art, away from all the crowds?

    Why Parisian men feel compelled to pee in the street?

    How to choose a hotel room where you might actually get a good night's sleep?

    Stephen Clarke goes behind the scenes to reveal everything Parisians know about their city - but don't want to tell you.

    Merde Actually (Paul West #2)
    by Stephen Clarke

    'Edgier than Bryson, hits harder than Mayle'

    The Times

    A year after arriving in France, Englishman Paul West is still struggling with some fundamental questions:

    What is the best way to scare a gendarme? Why are there no health warnings on French nudist beaches? And is it really polite to sleep with your boss's mistress?

    Paul opens his English tea room, and mutates (temporarily) into a Parisian waiter; samples the pleasures of typically French hotel-room afternoons; and, on a return visit to the UK, sees the full horror of a British office party through Parisian eyes.

    Meanwhile, he continues his search for the perfect French mademoiselle. But will Paul find l'amour éternel, or will it all end in merde ?


    In his second comedy of errors, Paul West continues to sabotage the entente cordiale.

    Author's apology: 'I'd just like to say sorry to all the suppository fans out there, because in this book there are no suppositories. There are, however, lots of courgettes, and I see this as progress. Suppositories to courgettes - I think it proves that I'm developing as a writer.' Stephen Clarke

    Merde Happens (Paul West #3)
    by Stephen Clarke

    Paul West is in deep financial merde. His only way out of debt is to accept a decidedly dodgy job that involves him crossing the USA in a Mini, while pretending to be typically British.

    Adding to the crush in the car is Paul’s French girlfriend, Alexa, and his American poet friend Jake whose main aim in life is to sleep with a woman from every country in the world. Preferably in the back of Paul’s Mini.

    But as the little car battles from New York to Miami, and then heads west, legroom turns out to be the least of Paul’s troubles. His work is being sabotaged, his tour plans are in tatters, and his love life becomes a Franco-American war zone.

    And as Paul knows better than anyone, when you mix love and war – merde happens …

    Nguyên văn của cuvorn

    Đây là một cuốn sách bán rất chạy của tác giả Stephen Clarke. Truyện kể về một người Anh nhận công tác sang Pháp làm việc. Từ đây, anh ta đi hết ngạc nhiên này đến ngạc nhiên khác vì những điểm khác biệt giữa văn hóa 2 nước. Đây là một cuốn truyện cười, giải trí.

    Mình mới đọc qua một đoạn ngắn và rất thích, bạn nào có phiên bản truyện này bằng tiếng Anh có thể gửi cho mình được **? Cám ơn rất nhiều


    Tặng cuvorn "A Year In The Merde - Stephen Clarke" theo lời yêu cầu. Natphung có đọc qua và quả nhiên tác giả viết rất khôi hài.

    Thân mến.


    A Year In The Merde (Paul West #1)
    by Stephen Clarke

    Paul West, a young Englishman, arrives in Paris to start a new job - and finds out what the French are really like.

    They do eat a lot of cheese, some of which smells like pigs' droppings. They don't wash their armpits with garlic soap. Going on strike really is the second national participation sport after pétanque. And, yes, they do use suppositories.

    In his first novel, Stephen Clarke gives a laugh-out-loud account of the pleasures and perils of being a Brit in France. Less quaint than A Year in Provence, less chocolatey than Chocolat, A Year in the Merde will tell you how to get served by the grumpiest Parisian waiter; how to make perfect vinaigrette every time; how to make amour - not war; and how notto buy a house in the French countryside.
