Overview

With Toujours Provence, Peter Mayle continues where his enormously successful A Year in Provence left off. In this funny, savory, irresistible program, Mayle delights us with tales of life in Provence, including finding gold at the bottom of his garden and attending a Pavarotti concert under the stars. He also explores the joys and sometime hazards of wining and dining in France, and introduces us to some truly unique characters - including a wary truffle hunter, a gourmet in a tracksuit, and the wise and crafty Massot, the man from whom Provence holds no secrets.

The life that Peter Mayle portrays is a far cry from the quiet, uneventful existence suggested by picturesque postcards of the southern coast of France. And in his portrayal he proves the adage that, while you may not be able to escape from it all - you sure can have fun trying.

The author of the beloved bestseller A Year In Provence offers readers another funny, beautifully evocative book about life in the picturesque French town--a heartwarming place where, if you can't quite "get away from it all, " you can surely have a good time trying.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like a good host, [Mr. Mayle] entertains us with course after course of comic characters."

- The New York Times Book Review, on A Year in Provence

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
British author Mayle shares his adventures in France's Midi in an enchanting book that stayed on PW 's hardcover bestseller list for 19 weeks. His new book, Acquired Tastes , will be published by Bantam in May. (June)
Library Journal
For fans of his A Year in Provence ( LJ 4/1/90; ``Best Books of 1990,'' LJ 1/91), Mayle is back with more amusing tales of ``la vie en rose'' in the south of France. Writing with affectionate humor, he recounts such adventures as sneaking through British customs with a suitcase full of expensive truffles and digging for gold coins in his backyard with his wily and greedy neighbor. He encounters truly French eccentrics like Regis, the athlete gourmet who wears a track suit to enjoy his meals, and the ambitious Monsieur Salques, the choirmaster of the singing toads of St. Panteleon who plans to celebrate the bicentennial of the French Revolution with an amphibian rendition of the ``Marseillaise.'' Describing a memorable 50th-birthday picnic that ends in a sudden rainstorm, Mayle conjures up hilarious images in vivid prose: ``Showing through a pair of once-white, once-opaque trousers, red-lettered knickers wished us all Merry Xmas.'' Recommended for all travel collections.-- Wilda Williams, ``Library Journal''

    Satisfying Intermediate to Advance Reading.

    Toujour Provence is very much similar to A Year in Provence but with new random tales of life in Southern France. It's the same delightful read, just as the first, peppered with good-humor and open-minded observations, all thoroughly described with a level of upper intermediate to lower advance level of reading. There are books that deceives the reader with 300+ pages of wordage, only to find oneself disappointed in how unbelievably easy and grade-school the story is approached and written. Not so with Peter Mayle. Then there are books that drone on and on, over-descriptive, over-wordy, takes too long to get to the point. Not so with Peter Mayle. You will be satisfied with the manner and level of how this book is written.*

    A Sample of Life in France

    I found this book funny and charming, especially the chapters that had any dining experiences.

    A Second Helping of Provence!

    The follow-up to A Year in Provence provides additional insight to the relaxing way of life in the south of France. My favorite chapter is Boy, with the best description of an addition to the family I have ever seen.
