Ben Hatch is on the road again. Commissioned to write a guidebook about France (despite not speaking any French) he sets off with visions of relaxing chateaux and refined dining. Sixteen thousand kilometres later, his family has been attacked by a donkey, had a run-in with a death-cult, and (after a near-drowning and a calamitous wedding experience involving a British spy) his marriage is in real jeopardy. A combination of obsessions about mosquitoes, French gravel and vegetable theme parks mean it's a bumpy ride, as Ben takes a stand against tyrannical French pool attendants, finds himself running with the bulls in Pamplona, and almost stars in a snuff movie after a near-fatal decision to climb into a millionaire's Chevrolet Blazer. Funny and poignant, ROUD TO ROUEN asks important questions about life, marriage and whether it's ever acceptable to tape baguette to your children's legs to smuggle lunch into Disneyland Paris.
