Review:

"The plot is a marvel of ingenuity and makes most detective stories look primitive by comparison" (John Brophy)

"A fine satire, filled with humorous incidents and much subtle philosophy. It is for intelligent, open-minded people with a sense of humour" (Yorkshire Post)

"The author has a wonderful eye for village types, and the village of Clochemerle is built up for us as a shining and integrated whole - he has chosen to employ his great talents in describing a series of people, episoded and conversations that are ribald, exaggerated and bizarre. I must confess that its rollicking grossness pleased me" (Howard Spring)

"A full-blooded uproarious farce in the Rabelaisian tradition" (Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. A funny look at the social and political dynamic of French village life. Gabriel Chevallier's delightful novel Clochemerle satirizes the titanic confrontation of secular and religious forces in a small wine-growing village in Beaujolais. The eruption begins when the socialist mayor decides that he wants to leave behind a monument to his administration's achievements. He takes as his model the ancient Romans, who were famous for two things: hygiene and noble edifices. Thus, he decides to unite the two concepts.by constructing a public urinal in the centre of town. There is one problem, however: the chosen locale is next to the village church, and this outrages the ecclesiastical party.*Perfect for fans of Joanne Harris's Chocolate*.
