Author information

Peter Mayle spent fifteen years in the advertising business, first as a copywriter and then as a reluctant executive, before escaping Madison Avenue in 1975 to write educational books for children. In 1990, Mr. Mayle published A Year in Provence, which became an international bestseller. He is also the author of Encore Provence, Hotel Pastis, A Dog's Life, Anything Considered and Chasing Cezanne. In addition to writing books which have been translated into more than twenty languages, Mayle has contributed to the "Sunday Times, Financial Times, Independent, GQ" and "Esquire." He and his wife and two dogs live in the South of France.

Review quote

"Light and loving . . . a welcoming, happy book." --"San Francisco Chronicle""Like returning to a country inn, where you know the owner, where they save your favorite room for you, and the bartender remembers what you drink. . . . Provence has been fortunate in its laureates." --"The New York Times Book Review""Peter Mayle [is] something of a wonder . . . chronicling the scene around him in irresistible prose . . . the joys of a bountiful climate, brilliant sun and a splendid cuisine." --"Time"
