From Stephen Clarke, the internationally bestselling author of A Year in the Merde and In the Merde for Love, Merde Happens is the third installation of Paul West's hilarious mis-adventures in merde. This time around Paul finds himself in financial trouble. After failing to translate the menu of his English-style tearoom into proper French, the Ministry of Culture levies him with a substantial fine, which he must pay within 6 weeks or risk losing his business. So, he sets off to America, with his French girlfriend in tow, to take part in an international competition to promote Britain as a tourism destination. But as the not-so-dynamic duo stumble toward Los Angeles, via Boston, Miami, New Orleans, and Las Vegas, Paul's well-oiled plans for success, of course, turn to merde: While visiting Boston, he inspires an impromptu recreation of the Boston Tea Party; in Miami, he narrowly escapes a carjacking only to have to his hotel room catch fire later that night; and somewhere between Miami and New Orleans, his girlfriend hitches a ride with another man for a liaison dangereuse . Meanwhile, Paul's old flame has declared war on her former beau by trying to sabotage his chances of winning the contest. And as Paul knows better than anyone, when you mix love and war--merde happens.

Actually pretty funny...I could imagine it as a "Road Trip" movie

The third in this funny series, the first two are well worth a read...A year in the merde and Merde Actually are about the hilarious antics of an Englishman who opens a tea house in Paris. This, the third, has the character, Paul Ward, travel to the U.S. It was all funnier when it was set in Paris.
