"Passing Potes"

This is my last desperate effort.

I am trying to find a copy of "Passing Potes" to give as a gift to a friend. So far, I've had no luck. Does anyone know of anyplace where I can still buy it, preferably in the States? At this point, used is fine, so long as it's in decent shape.

On that note, if anyone has a copy they'd like to sell me, please send me a PM.

Thanks!

Re: "Passing Potes"

Is it the book Clément and Grosjean wrote together? I'd like to know the references too to be able to find it. If someone could help...

Yes, it is. A while ago, someone translated large sections of it and posted them here, which is how I heard of it. I've been looking ever since.

Re: "Passing Potes"

if book stores aren't selling it now, the remaining hope will be ebay (or some 2nd hand bookshop in france!) or we can keep this thread alive for a few more years until a nono fan decides to sell out, lol

no problem at all esther i have yet to have seb sign it, so he'd better not stop playing too soon.

Re: "Passing Potes"

hahaha i got the greatest response from seb!! wrote me a note he did! yes yes i know he pretty much wrote me the same word, just in two different languages, but that's not the point hehe, it's the fact that he asked me for my name so he could write it for me ... so sweet!

"arnaud, you're moving as fast a rash!" "like a what?!?!"

hopelessly devoted to you....arnaud and juan carlos

Re: "Passing Potes"

i won't have high hopes for seb but the most important thing for me is that arnaud had signed it. so seb's autograph will make it complete, sort of. of course i won't let him know, i'll look like i'm the most devoted fan
