Stephen Clarke - Egy ​év a Francban
Paul ​West egy londoni húsipari cégtől érkezik Párizsba. Igyekszik helytállni munkahelyén, de még inkább a kényes ízlésű francia nők meghódítása terén. Ám egyik sem könnyű egy olyan országban, ahol az orrfelhúzás genetikailag öröklődik, ahol a sztrájk nemzeti sport, és ahol a sajtok szinte "lemásznak" az asztalról...

Stephen Clarke - The ​Merde Factor
An ​Englishman, a French woman -- and a whole lot of merde... The hilarious new novel from the bestselling author of 1000 Years of Annoying the French. Englishman Paul West is living the Parisian dream, and doing his best not to annoy the French. But things have been going very wrong: His apartment is so small that he has to cut his baguettes in two to fit them in the kitchen. His research into authentic French cuisine is about to cause a national strike. And Paul's gorgeous ex-girlfriend seems to be stalking him. Threatened with eviction, unemployment and bankruptcy, Paul realises that his personal merde factor is about to hit the fan.

Stephen Clarke - Merde ​Happens
The ​Englishman - Paul West is in deep financial merde and has taken on a decidedly dodgy job touring America in a Mini. The Frenchwoman - Alexa, his trés Parisienne girlfriend, claims to despise everything American, but ends up getting a little too friendly with the locals for Paul's liking. The American - Jake is a poet whose main aim in life is to sleep with a woman from every country in the world. Preferably in the back of Paul's Mini. 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 love-life has become a Franco-American war zone; and as Paul knows better than anyone, when you mix love and war - merde happens...

Stephen Clarke - Merde ​Actually
A ​year after arriving in France, Englishman Paul West is still struggling with some fundamental questions: What is the best way to scare a gendarme? Why are there no health warnings on French nudist beaches? And is it really polite to sleep with your boss's mistress? Paul opens his English tea room, and mutates (temporarily) into a Parisian waiter; samples the pleasures of typically French hotel-room afternoons; and, on a return visit to the UK, sees the full horror of a British office party through Parisian eyes. Meanwhile, he continues his search for the perfect French mademouselle. But will Paul find l'amour éternel, or will it all end in merde?

Stephen Clarke - 1000 ​Years of Annoying the French
The ​English Channel may be only twenty miles wide, but it's a thousand years deep. Stephen Clarke takes a penetrating look into those murky depths, guiding us through all the times when Britain and France have been at war - or at least glowering at each other across what we Brits provocatively call the English Channel. Starting With the Norman (not French) Conquest and going right up to the supposedly more peaceful present, when a state visit by French President Nicolas Sarkozy bacomes a series of hilarious historical insults, it is a lighthearted - but impeccably researched - account of all our great fallings-out. In short, the French are quite right to suspect that the last 1000 years have been one long British campaign to infuriate them. And it's not over yet...

Stephen Clarke - Dial ​M for Merde
In ​the South of France, Paul West has a license to thrill. He has just received an offer he can't refuse: two weeks in the sun, all expenses paid, with a beautiful blonde called Gloria Monday. But it soon becomes obvious that M, as Gloria likes to be known, is not really interested in holidaying with Paul. She has bigger fish to fry. Meanwhile Paul's best friend Elodie is getting married, and Paul is asked to do the catering. Cooking for the French is a risky assignment at the best of times, but Paul assures Elodie that nothing can go wrong. Or can it? When Paul discovers that M's real target is France's biggest fish of all - the new President - and that he's coming to Elodie's wedding, he realises that the merde is about to hit the fan ...

Stephen Clarke - A ​Year in the Merde
Paul ​West arrives in Paris to start a new job - and finds out what the French are really like. They do eat a lot of cheese, some of which smells like pigs' dropping. They don't wash their armpits with garlic soap. Going on strike really is the second national participation sport after pétanque. And, yes, they do use suppositories. In his first novel, Stephen Clarke gives a laugh-out-loud account of the pleasures and perils of being a Brit in France. A Year in the Merde tells you how to get served by the grumpiest Parisian waiter; how to make amour - not war; and how not to buy a house in the French countryside.

Stephen Clarke - Menjünk ​a Francba!
Paul, ​a Franciaországba szakadt brit kezdi megszokni a párizsi életet – sőt a francia konyhát is, annak ellenére, hogy itt a kakaós csiga nem péksütemény –, így belevág nagy álma megvalósításába, egy párizsi angol teázó megnyitásába. Még előtte azonban nyaralni indul ágyékbizsergetően szexi barátnőjével. Innentől kezdve minden újabb kaland csupa tanulság: a nudista strandon ne tegyünk megjegyzést izmos pasi szerszámára, az osztriga nem torokhurut, a litván dzsessz és a szex nagyban hasonlít; ne kavarjunk a volt főnökünk leendő nőivel. És mi van a szerelemmel? Kiderül az újabb francos-flancos kalandokból… Stephen Clarke huszonegy országban megjelenő, több millió példányban eladott nagy sikerű sorozata az angol humor és a francia divat kedvelőinek kötelező olvasmánya. Stephen még mindig az Eiffel-torony lábánál él párizsi barátnőjével, akitől nyelvórákat vesz.

Stephen Clarke - A ​Brief History of the Future
Englishman ​Richie and his wife Clara have won a weekend in New York in a newspaper competition. While Clara is off blowing their spending money, Richie wanders aimlessly, chewing on a veggie-burger, ending up in a gift-shop where he finds himself standing in front of an instant transporter machine. It looks nothing like the open-plan teleporter on Captain Kirk's Starship Enterprise; in fact, it seems more like a glorified microwave oven. Richie places his burger inside, hits the return key on the linked-up computer - and the burger disappears. But if he can teleport a half-eaten veggie-burger, what else could you do with the machine? For criminals, the possibilities are endless. Who could catch you if you beamed drugs into nostrils a hundred miles away? And how much would illegal immigrants pay to be teleported into the rich host country of their choice? Richie buys a teleporter and takes it back to England, where the chaos begins ...
