Über diesen Titel


Monsieur Le Comte de St Cucuface is a charismatic aristocrat fallen on hard times who slums his way around post-war France in elegant style, trading on his name and his exquisite manners. After a chance encounter on a train, he convinces a wide-eyed Ludwig Bemelmans to adopt the identity of an imaginary German Prince and join him in his ruse for a while. Together they set out on an enchanted adventure through an old France that is crumbling to dust, feeding off the comically vulgar continental set that is fast replacing Cucuface's blue-blooded caste. They dine on the finest food and wine, stay at the finest hotels and chateaux, pausing only for St Cucuface to recount another amusing tale of his eccentric lineage. Originally published in 1952, mixing autobiography and fiction to magical effect, How to Travel Incognito is both a gently comic travelogue and an affectionate and melancholic hymn to the passing of an ancient order.


"a complete original" Saturday Review "The singularity of Bemelmans, whether he draws or writes, is his double capacity to see freshly like a child and comment shrewdly like a grown-up. The product is an awry wisdom, the wisdom of a reflective innocent who is surprised at nothing and delighted with everything." Clifton Fadiman "An excellent story-teller" Cyril Connolly, Sunday Times "I know of no other writing that pleases the mental palate as pungently, swiftly and freshly as does Mr Bemelmans" Elizabeth Bowen, Tatler "An artist in both line and words... with talents of gold" The Observer"
