I just can't understand why Giono is not more well-known in English. In France he is, literally, a household name. Browse the secondhand bookstores and you'll find as many of his works as just about anyone's. Mention him to a French-speaker and they'll likely roll their eyes and say, 'Of course I've heard of Jean Giono.' Yet this book - one of his major works - has received only 7 ratings here, and not one review!

Is the problem that Giono does not fit with our Anglo conception of French writing?

Giono always delivers a world of humans as part of the environment. As full of blood and piss and superstition as any creature. Hreart breaking relationships to ourselves and others. Seemed a bit rushed at the end so Four stars.
