One Brit in Brussels. Two French Women. And a whole lot of merde. The hilarious novel from Stephen Clarke, bestselling author of A Year in the Merde and A Thousand Years of Annoying the French.

THE POST-BREXIT EDITION - brand new chapters with extra EU chaos for Englishman Paul West.

An Englishman, Paul West, goes to Brussels to work for a French MEP. There he gets an insider's view of what really goes on in the massive madhouse that is the EU Parliament. With the referendum on the horizon, things are even more hysterical than usual.

When the Brexit result comes in, Paul has to make a decision. If he wants to work in Europe, should he apply for a French passport?

But can an Englishman really become French?
Can he sing the bloodthirsty 'Marseillaise'?
Can he even pronounce the word 'Marseillaise'?

And as Paul contemplates his own personal Brexit, the whole of Brussels seems to be going into meltdown …

Reviews

Stephen Clarke brings some much-needed humour to Britain’s EU referendum debate in this entertaining novel… Clarke considers both sides of the argument and makes the debate much more accessible.
