In his witty and warmhearted account—a modern classic that first appeared in 1989—Peter Mayle realizes a long held dream when he moves into a 200 year old stone farmhouse in the countryside of Lubéron. Along with his wife and two large dogs, he endures January's frosty mistral wind as it comes howling down the Rhône Valley; discovers the secrets of goat racing through the middle of town; and delights in the glorious regional cuisine. Mayle's colorful, often hilarious account transports readers to the earthy pleasures of Provençal life and lets us live vicariously at a tempo governed by seasons rather than by days. This anniversary edition includes a new afterword.
