She�s a vegetarian. He�s a carnivore.

Will it be a table for one?

Meet L�a. She�s the idealistic owner and chef of La Dame Verte, a vegetarian restaurant struggling in a small French town in Brittany.

Meet Mathieu. He�s the carnivorous marketing director of the town�s biggest pork producer, which is trying to put L�a out of business to take over the restaurant's prime real estate.

When L�a and Mathieu first cross paths, it is under false pretenses�Mathieu is posing as a vegetarian, infiltrating the local animal rights community for information that will force L�a�s restaurant toward a swifter demise. And while L�a suspects that Mathieu isn�t all that he appears to be, she has no idea how deep his culinary deception goes. Neither of them can deny the attraction they feel for each other, and it seems as though they might be setting a table for two � until L�a learns the truth.

Translated from the French, The Green and the Red is at once a romantic comedy and a comedy of errors�two people from different worlds coming together in a small French town immersed in the culture of food.

About the Author

Armand Chauvel is a French journalist and correspondent for Spain and Portugal. Born in France to an extended family of Burgundian winemakers, he spent a large part of his childhood in Senegal and Brazil due to his father�s work as a tropical agronomist.

Armand studied journalism in Paris before taking work in Portugal and later in Spain. Although his journalistic focus is the economy and the business world, Armand is also passionate about the arts. He studied painting in Lisbon as well as playwriting and scriptwriting in Paris before tackling the novel genre. He became a vegetarian in 2006 after viewing the documentary Earthlings, and since then has taken a growing interest in the vegan diet and philosophy.

In September 2012, Armand founded the French-language blog Vegeshopper, which explores consumerism from a vegetarian/vegan perspective and features interviews on the subject with notable individuals. Armand currently resides in Barcelona with his wife and their young son. The Green and the Red is his first published novel.
