A Year in Provence
Apr 23, 2012
I read this in preparation for a planned trip to Provence later this year. I don't think it held up quite as well as over the years as people seem to think. Some of the quaint charm wore on me after a while. And many of the witty generalizations seemed to be offered in lieu of really getting to know and appreciate people, although the author's love of the place comes across clearly. I suspect because of the last few France based books I've read they all seem to follow the same theme, and my feelings may be less a reflection of this particular book and more directed at the genre overall.
