Current Read- My Twenty Five Years in Provence


Peter Mayle’s look back at his life in Provence and the affection he had for his chosen homeland. As always, his writing is full of charm as he brings you into the rhythms of Provence living.

This nostalgic book being his last before he died seems a fitting goodbye. Nobody did it better. RIP.


“A Year in Provence” is my favorite Mayle book, and probably one of my favorite books in general. He and his wife decide to move to France and he details the beauty of Provence, the struggles of being an expat, and the characters of the village all with love and humor.
