it was amazing
bookshelves: read-over-and-over, now-we-re-cooking, giggle-worthy, travel
Recommended to Marguerite by: Washington Post
Recommended for: Armchair adventurers, foodies
Read in January, 1991

The best travel writing transports the reader to the place. Peter Mayle does it with Smell-o-vision. I could taste the wine and olive oil, smell the truffles, feel the cold wind. A Year in Provence is also laugh-aloud funny at times. If you can't live in France...
