Description:

An indispensable, richly informative, and always entertaining sourcebook on Provence by the writer who has made the region his own. Though organized from A to Z, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. It is rather a selection of those aspects of Provence that Peter Mayle in almost twenty years there has found to be the most interesting, curious, delicious, or downright fun. He writes about subjects as diverse as architecture, expatriates, scorpions, the Provençal character, legends, lavender, linguistic oddities, the origins of "La Marseillaise," wild boars and Frenchwinds. And, of course, he writes about food and drink. Provence A-Z is a delight for Peter Mayle's ever-growing audience and these unabridged selections are the perfect complement to any guidebook on Provence, or, for that matter, France.
