Short Description for Provence A-Z The author of several books set in Provence, including the now-classic travel tome "A Year in Provence" and a more recent novel, "A Good Year," Mayle has once again trapped the sunshine, the wind, and the very lavender-laden air of the southeastern French countryside.

Full description for Provence A-Z
The ultimate "dictionary" for lovers of Provence: Peter Mayle's personal selection of the foods, customs and words he finds most fascinating, curious, delicious, or just plain fun. Though organized from A to Z, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. In more than 170 entries, Peter Mayle--bestselling author of "A Year in Provence"--writes about subjects as wide-ranging as architecture and "zingue-zingue-zoun" (in the local patois, a word meant to describe the sound of a violin). And, of course, he writes about food and drink: " vin rose," truffles, olives, melons, bouillabaisse, the cheese that killed a Roman emperor, even a cure for indigestion. "Provence A-Z" is a delight for Peter Mayle's ever-growing audience and the perfect complement to any guidebook on Provence, or, for that matter, France.
