Clochemerle, by Gabriel Chevallier
Clochemerle, Gabriel Chevallier
Illustrated by Julian Brazelton.
Clochemerle is a much loved French satirical novel set in a French village in the Beaujolais region. It is a classic book with a wonderful story based around the ramifications that develop over plans to install a new urinal in the village square. The little town erupts in turmoil. The army is sent in to restore order, but they only add to the confusion as they get involved with the local women.
Clochemerle was written in 1934 and was adapted for television by the BBC in 1972. Adapted by Galton & Simpson.
It was also made as a film ‘Scandals of Clochemerle’ in 1948. Directed by Pierre Chenal.
This is a wonderful book and a delight to read with the excellent illustrations by Julian Brazelton.
This book is a reprinted edition, September 1956.
Condition: Hardback, dust-jacket is slightly torn and marked but has a nice line drawing of the village. Inside pages are clean with lots of very nice line illustrations scattered throughout the book. If you love this story, to read a copy that has survived since 1956 with these lovely illustrations will be a real pleasure.
