|Plot Summary of A Year in Provence|
|"Successful London advertising executive Peter Mayle fled to the south of France with his wife, bought a farmhouse, and began to settle into the rhythms, culture, and especially the cuisine of Provence. His book about the first year there is filled with amusing incidents, eccentric characters, problems with remodeling, and great eating. The tone is light, gently mocking (of both author and subjects), and utterly winning. Don't miss the great goat race late in the summer!"
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
