From the Publisher:

Monsieur Le Comte de St Cucuface is a charismatic aristocrat fallen on hard times who slums his way around postwar 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. 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 Cucuface¹s blue-blooded caste. They dine on the finest food and wine, stay at the most splendid hotels and chateaux, pausing only for Cucuface to recount another amusing tale of his eccentric lineage. Mixing autobiography and fiction to magical effect, How to Travel Incognito is an affectionate and melancholic hymn to the passing of an ancient order.

About the Author:

Ludwin Bemeumans wrote over forty children's books. His illustrations can be found in many museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Musee National d'Art of Paris.
