Review: My Twenty-Five Years in Provence by Peter Mayles

Like so many others, I loved Peter Mayles Provence books and the tv series they spawned. Not too long ago I read one of his novels, and enjoyed it well enough.  When I heard that he had died in January I was genuinely sad. It was like losing if not an old friend then a losing a very special acquaintance.

This book, sadly, his last, is full of really nice leftover piece that never found a home in his other books.  If he’d had a blog–these would be the “best of” posts.  One reviewer called this little volume Mayles’ love letter to Provence. I agree–on some posts. On others, I just found them to be interesting. Regardless, all were things to make you feel good.

My Rating

3.5

  1. I must read something by him! I have a friend who has mentioned loving his Provence books, so he is on my radar. Just never gotten around to it … yet.
