This is an auction for MERDE HAPPENS by Stephen Clarke. reviews:

"Paul West is in deep financial merde. His only way out of debt is to tour America in a Mini, while pretending to be typically British. Also in the car is Paul's French girlfriend, Alexa, and his American poet friend, Jake, whose aim in life is to sleep with a woman from every country in the world. But as the little car battles from New York to Miami, and then heads west, leg-room 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 war zone. And when you mix love and war - merde happens ..."

"FIVE STARS!!!! The author of Merde Actually and A year in the Merde has written a new novel which shifts from the traditional setting of Paris to selected locations in the US, including New York, historical Boston, beach culture Miami, the swamps of the deep south, casino city Las Vegas and movie world Los Angeles. The cast includes funny Englishman Paul, French madamoiselle Alexa, and poet Jake. The mission is to promote Rule Britainnia to the Yanks, by driving a mini coated in the distinctive colours of the British flag. Is the mission a looming disaster, bearing in mind of Paul's ignorance and naive handling of a tea room shop in Paris? All will be revealed. Out of all previous novels by the author, Merde Happens is the best!"
