Delightful observations on the customs, people and especially the food of Provence, France. I actually laughed out loud at some of the dry humor the author reveals. (My husband thinks I am crazy!)You become a traveller while sitting at home, he is that descriptive, yet one of us, an observer. Great read.

Time Magazine said, "He is something of a wonder...chronicling the scene around him in irrestible prose, the joys of a bountiful climate, brilliant sun, and a splending cuisine."

Absolutely an outstanding audio book....drove cross country listening to it and couldn't stop laughing! It made the time go by quickly.

Another fun visit to Provence, and a good review of my college French, with the French words sprinkled in here and there. I am glad to have read these books in sequence.

Another pleasant trip to Provence. It is a unique place and Mayle has a great way of describing it & it's many idiosyncracies.

i like this book even better than the first one "a year in provence"
It has really made me want to go and I am actively planning for next summer and using this book and the prior one like guidebooks. I want to walk in his footsteps and see the Provence he sees and describes so beautifully

Peter Mayle gives a wonderful picture of not only what it's like to live in Provence, but describes with great humor the essence of the Provencial personalities and some of the best features of the area, such as their wines, olive oils, cork screws and truffels, and especially their food. It's a delightful read.
