A modern-day Moliere,
This review is from: Merde Happens (Paperback)
It's a rare author who, after a first best-selling book, is able to continue producing follow-ups of equal quality. Stephen Clarke has managed to write yet another gem, exquisitely well-written, exquisitely funny and highly entertaining. And what a delight it is to have someone who actually produces intelligent humour.
Another thing I admire about Clarke's writing is that he manages to make his fiction sound so true-to-life you find it hard to believe it is actually fiction.
What I like too about Merde Happens (as well as Clarke's other books in the Merde series) is that his well-observed descriptions of various nationalities' little idiosyncrasies never sound patronising . I'd go as far as saying he's a modern-day Molière!
