9780140443349: Letters from My Windmill (Classics)

Alphonse Daudet's novels established him as the most successful writer in France by the end of the XIX century; but it was the LETTERS, first published in book form in 1869, which remained his favourite creation and has proved his most lasting.

Throughout his working life in Paris Daudet never lost his almost umbilical attachment to Provence. These tales of that region are characterised by a tenderness and delicacy, a wistfulness and wry humour, which give moving substance to his claim that to invent, for him, was to remember.

About the Author:

Alphonse Daudet was born at Nimes in 1840. He is chiefly remembered today for LETTERS FROM MY WINDMILL which appeared in 1866, and for his Tartarin novels, a sequence of burlesque tales of Provencal life. Daudet died in 1897.
