The Book

After a successful advertising career in London, Peter Mayle moves into a 200-year-old stone farmhouse with his wife in the Lubéron, South of France. But the quiet Provencial life holds many surprises, from dinner parties with eccentric neighbors, to goat races in the middle of town. A Year in Provence is a best-selling memoir on French gastronomy, local customs and amusing incidents from the witty perspective of a British expat.

The Author

Peter Mayle was a British businessman who moved to France in the 1980s. He wrote a series of bestselling memoirs about his life in Provence, starting with A Year in Provence (1989), which has been translated into more than twenty languages. The French government made him a Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honor) in 2002, for coopération et francophonie. He died in 2018 in Aix-en-Provence.
