This is one of my two favorite books on Provence, the other being Ford Maddoxx Ford's book "Provence". Durell spent his last years in Provence and this book does a great job of capturing its history and culture. Mayle's books are fun, junk food; this book is a seven course, five-hour meal at a three-star Michelin restaurant.
