Review:

"Mayle's affection for lavender fields and languid lunched continues unabated-and so does his influence."
--USA Today

"Mayle's magpie dictionary yields amusing facts . . . and useful information. . . . You'll soon succumb to his road-tested charm."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Whether he's smacking his lips in gustatory contentment or mock exasperation, Mayle's affection runneth over. . . . If there is anything charmless or depressing in all of Provence, its secret is safe with him."
--The Boston Globe

"After nearly two decades of writing about the character and the characters of Provence, Mayle's love for this rich and colorful region is undiminished."
--The Christian Science Monitor
