A CLASSIC MASTERWORK? OUI!
Unemployed Man can add international travel to his résumé, because the French edition of The Adventures of Unemployed Man—Les Adventures D'Ultra Chômeur—is now available in France!
In many ways, the cognitive dissonance of the book is even funnier in the elegant French language. There's another interesting thing about the French version…
In English, an "unemployed" man is defined by what he doesn't have. He is simply un-employed. As a consequence of this, Unemployed Man struggles to see himself as anything other than "worthless." Amazingly, in French, an unemployed person still has an identity as a human being! There's even a gender-neutral word for it: chômeur.
Oh, and one other thing about the French edition—the book's gorgeous art really shines thanks to the impeccable printing done by Presque Lune. It is best enjoyed with a day-old baguette.
