NATIONAL BESTSELLER Taking up where his belovedA Year in Provenceleaves off, Peter Mayle offers us another funny, beautifully (and deliciously) evocative book about life in Provence. With tales only one who lives there could know—of finding gold coins while digging in the garden, of indulging in sumptuous feasts at truck stops—and with characters introduced with great affection and wit—the gendarme fallen from grace, the summer visitors ever trying the patience of even the most genial Provençaux, the straightforward dog "Boy"—Toujours Provenceis a heart-warming portrait of a place where, if you can't quite "get away from it all," you can surely have a very good time trying.

Peter Mayle was born in Brighton, England on June 14, 1939. He began his career in advertising as a copywriter and rose to the executive ranks, but left advertising in 1975 to write educational books, including a series on sex education for children and young people. A prolific writer and journalist, he first made the bestseller's list in 1990 with A Year in Provence, which chronicles his adventures buying and restoring an old farmhouse in the south of France. The novel received the British Book Awards' Best Travel Book of the Year. His other works include Toujours Provence, Acquired Tastes: A Beginner's Guide to Serious Pleasure, and Hotel Pastis. His novel A Good Year was the basis for the 2006 film of the same name starring actors Russell Crowe and Marion Cotillard.
