From the publisher's description: "'Ladies and gentlemen, alas! The Emperor is dead.' The news goes out across Europe, but in fact Napoleon has not died. By means of an ingenious escape, he has returned to the Continent, leaving an impersonator on St. Helena, and it is this double who has unexpectedly and very problematically passed away. Traveling incognito, the Emperor experiences a series of bizarre adventures which bring him face to face with the myth of Napoleon ad it is disconcertingly played out in everyday life."
