From vantage points as varied as the Cannes Film Festival, the "caves" at Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Menerbes Dog Show, this book show that life in the Provence is far from the quiet and uneventful existence suggested by those postcards of empty villages and picturesque peasants. All kinds of characters are lurking in the lavender: estate agents, a disgraced gendarme, reporters from "Vogue" and hot off the autoroute and baying for social activity, the summer invaders. This is the sequel to "A Year in Provence".
