Introduce Yourself to Peter Mayle

It is important for you to reach out to Peter Mayle, even though he lives in Provence, the historical province of southeastern France. However, you will find the trek to visit Mr. Mayle an affordable journey, and as close as your library, book store, and even your Kindle. Might I recommend when purchasing a book, I often seek out used books. There is something wonderful about an old well worn book. 

The England-born author, Peter Mayle first started his writing career by penning educational books. He would eventually move to France with the plans to write his first novel, but instead, the words came out about his new life in France. In 1989, the international bestseller A Year in Provence was introduced. 

Later, came a collection of over 10 books, many with the same theme of his life in France, including Encore ProvenceFrench Lessons: Adventures with Knife, Fork, and Corkscrew; and The Good Year.  In fact, the novel, The Good Year was the base of the 2006 film of the same name, starring Albert Finney, Russell Crowe, and Marion Cotillard. A must-see movie if you enjoy wine, travel, romance, and just a good heartfelt story. 

Peter Mayle's books will take you on adventures throughout Europe, especially France and you will be eating and drinking well, done with humor and detail, while meeting many charming characters on the way.
