The French Edition of the megapopular Wuxi Expat book The Poolside Harry Moore: Harry Moore Au Bord de la Piscine is scheduled to be published on Tuesday in Paris.
Already, thousands of Parisians are gathering at their favorite bookstores to buy a copy or ten or a hundred of the book which was translated by the author himself.
Persons lucky enough to have read an advance copy of the book say that Moore, who couldn’t speak a word of French just one year ago, has written prose of such quality that exceeds that of the Victor Hugo, Gustav Flaubert, and Racine.
Moore’s political writing, has been said by one critic, to be so profound to the French mind that he predicts the publishing of Au Bord de la Piscine could result in the toppling of the Fifth Republic and the establishment of a Sixth or Harry Moore Republic.
Moore had agreed to pose for some special poolside photos for Au Bord de la Piscine with a French theme. "You will say ooh la la! when you see the Archduke wearing a Beret and eating cheese!" said Wuxi Expat Blogger Andrew Cowlinch who had seen an advance copy of the book.
