Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

British expatriate Peter Mayle returns to writing, and narrating, about what he knows best, his life in Provence. Whether waxing poetic on the food, scenery, wildlife, or flora, Mayle reads from this encyclopedia with an obvious love for his subject. He is most enjoyable when laughing at himself, and his sometimes disparaging tone makes his descriptions of his own foibles spring to life. He systematically takes the listener through his guidebook on what he knows about this popular section of France, also sharing stories of how he gained each tidbit of knowledge. All that's missing from his beautiful and entertaining descriptions of the land and people he has embraced are the warm sun and a glass of wine on the patio.
