Spotted very prominently displayed in a bookstore in Beaune, France:
I first learned of the book from Parker himself on twitter a few months back:
I don't read French well, unfortunately, so I can't validate Mr. Parker's assessment of the book, but it certainly didn't seem to be excoriating. But then again it all depends on the point of view you bring to the book. Fans may see pure satire, while foes may find vindication for their enmity.
It certainly did look funny.
Looks like it's available from Amazon France for anyone who really wants a copy.
