Stephen Clarke Talks about and Signs his New Book, Paris Revealed
Monday 04 April 2011
Come hear about the Paris you never knew from the bestselling author of A Year in the Merde and 1000 Years of Annoying the French.
Stephen Clarke goes behind the scenes to reveal everything Parisians know about their city – but don’t want to tell you. He tells us 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 lives in Paris, where he divides his time between writing and not writing. His first novel, A Year in the Merde, originally became a word-of-mouth hit in 2004, and is now published all over the world. Since then he has published three more bestselling Merde novels, as well as Talk to the Snail, an indispensable guide to understanding the French. Research for Stephen's novels has taken him all over France and America. For 1000 Years of Annoying the French, he has also been breathing the chill air of ruined castles and deserted battlefields, leafing through dusty chronicles, brushing up the medieval French he studied at university and generally losing himself in the mists of history. He has now returned to present-day Paris, and is doing his best to live the entente cordiale.
