The Best Thing That Can Happen to a Croissant Paperback
by Pablo Tusset
An easy-riding, ball-busting comedy of bad manners, this is one of the most surprising and entertaining literary debuts of recent years.
Pablo Baloo Miralles, a fat, useless and flatulent thirty-year-old, is the black sheep of his obscenely wealthy family.
While he dedicates his days to online philosophy chatrooms and his nights to whatever pleasures he can find, his brother, 'The First,' is president of his booming family business.
But, when 'The First' suddenly disappears, Pablo finds himself being sucked into a hair-raising, mind-bending adventure - an adventure in which he must use all of his well-honed survival instincts to come out alive.
