Fiction • 4 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

This surprise international bestseller is a sharp-tongued, funny account of a corporate-climbing Brit thrust deep into the MERDE of daily Parisian life. Gerard Doyle neatly embodies protagonist Paul West as the cocky, headstrong success-and-skirt-chasing young exec who must adjust to an annoyingly eccentric Gallic lifestyle. You'll laugh as West explains his blundering attempts to solve the puzzle of French society, finally succumbing to its charms in his take-no-prisoners entrepreneurial style. Though MERDE is not as funny as, say, Monty Python, it makes a pleasant fondue of humor and folly for the ear. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
