Here is a cheeky, irreverent look at Monaco, and the quirky characters who populate the fairy-tale Principality. A trendy Tex-Mex saloon in the “native” quarter becomes the author’s second home as he attempts survival in the world’s swankiest neighborhood. The Principality’s most eccentric characters cling to Le Texan like algae to a Venice wharf-it is the hub of MONACO COOL.

MONACO COOL’s breezy style and charming blend of brio, zest and menace make this a wickedly good treat.
