Présentation de l'éditeur

‘I found Serge’s advice mostly useful and it would have been churlish to have refused his invitation to accompany him on a trip out in the country to “forage for hidden treasures”. If the truth be known, I secretly couldn’t resist the novelty of passing time with a bloke called Serge Bastarde.’

When ex-blues drummer John Dummer decamps to France to start up as an antiques dealer and live the simple life, he doesn’t count on meeting Serge Bastarde. The lovable (if improbably named) rogue and brocanteur offers to teach John the tricks of the trade in return for his help in a series of breathtakingly unscrupulous schemes.

As the pair trawl through antiques markets and old farmhouses looking for hidden treasure, they get into more than their fair share of scrapes: whether they’re conning hearty lunches from unsuspecting old peasants, secretly manufacturing priceless collectibles or losing a Stradivarius to gypsies.

Filled with eccentric characters, high jinks and unlikely adventures, this is a hilarious romp through the real rural France.

For those who have not traveled around rural France, this book is a find. The descriptions are lively, I recognize the types and the situations (to a certain extent)....good reading, amusing story.

Received this book on a Monday, and had it finished by the next day. Love reading about
France and the French, and this book didn't disappoint. Written by an Englishman, living in France, it centers around his sometimes pal, Serge Bastarde, and their forays around the country in search of antiques. It was a fun book to read, and will certainly add it to my collection of books about this wonderful country.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 `Compulsive reading' - the best recommendation I could give a book 13 décembre 2011
Par Robert Johnson - Publié sur
`Compulsive reading' is possibly the best recommendation that could be given for a book. It begins with the title `Serge Bastarde ate my Baguette'. I have come across books with intriguing titles which have proved to be far less intriguing than their titles intimated - but with John Dummer's book, the text far surpassed the title. It is a book to delight the raconteur - and being of that ilk, I have already regaled friends with episodes from his adventures. There is something that pulls the reader in - and like all the best books the reader becomes utterly immersed in the author's world. The book is subtitled `On the Road in Real Rural France' but--tongue-in-cheek--it could have been subtitled `Fear and Loathing in Rural France' after Hunter Thompson's novel. The allusion I make is not to the full-tilt drug abuse of `Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' but to the sense of strangeness and dramatic mystery. John Dummer depicts an image of France that will fascinate the reader and I cannot help but compare the book to a fine wine. It has a Gormenghastian `nose', with hints of Jack Kerouac's `On the Road' and - ever-so-slightly . . . Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The `palate' is that of a hero of the British Blues Boom turned brocanteur - antique dealer. I never knew that word, or several other French words before I read the book - but now they are old friends. A good book is always educational in some sense - and John Dummer has found a perfect balance of narrative and with a light peppering of information. The final aspect of wine appreciation is the `finish' - and book finishes as unexpectedly as each chapter is unexpected. Serge Bastarde--around whom the narrative evolves--is finely penned. He's a rogue--a French wide boy--and it would have been all too easy to have made a caricature of him. John Dummer however presents him with touching humanity - and I could see how I would have fallen in with Serge in similar circumstances. There were times during my reading when I felt as if John Dummer was another version of me - and I found it extremely easy to see the partially mediæval world of rural France through his eyes. This is a marvellous book that I would recommend to anyone, whether or not they are interested in the subject matter - because the narrative stands alone. John Dummer is a man who could write about train spotting and make it a gripping read.

Wonder what it's like to live by your wits? To negotiate a foreign country? To befriend a scoundrel? Join John Dummer as he is dumbfounded, astounded, and ultimately educated as he wheels and deals in rural France.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read ! 2 juillet 2012
Par mickpaul - Publié sur
The previous reviewer pretty much said it all, and far more eloquently than I could.

That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I read it in the space of a few days, the dialogue has a wonderful pace and prose, with a good bit of humour and lots of insider information on the French countryside, all through the eyes of a British Expat.

Can't wait to read the next instalment !!
