More About The Death of Napoleon by Simon Leys; Patricia Clancy
 
 
 
Overview

"As he bore a vague resemblance to the Emperor, the sailors on board the "Hermann-Augustus Stoeffer" had nicknamed him Napoleon. And so, for convenience, that is what we shall call him."
" Besides, he "was" Napoleon. . . ."
Napoleon has escaped from St. Helena, leaving a double behind him. Now disguised as the cabin hand Eugene Lenormand and enduring the mockery of the crew (Napoleon, they laughingly nickname the pudgy, hopelessly clumsy little man), he is on his way back to Europe, ready to make contact with the huge secret organization that will return him to power. But then the ship on which he sails is rerouted from Bordeaux to Antwerp. When Napoleon disembarks, he is on his own.
He revisits the battlefield of Waterloo, now a tourist destination. He makes his way to Paris. Mistakes, misunderstandings, and mishaps conduct our puzzled hero deeper and deeper into the mystery of Napoleon."
