Englishman Paul West is in deep financial merde.

His only way out of debt is to accept a decidedly dodgy job touring 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 main aim in life is to sleep with a woman from every country in the world. Preferably in the back of Paul's Mini.

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 Franco-American war zone.

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.
