Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle

Into the Wild

Toujours Provence Read Online Free - Taking up where his beloved A Year in Provence leaves off, Peter Mayle offers us another funny, beautifully (and deliciously) evocative book about life in Provence. With tales only one who lives there could know—of finding gold coins while digging in the garden, of indulging in sumptuous feasts at truck stops—and with characters introduced with great affection and wit—the gendarme fallen from grace, the summer visitors ever trying the patience of even the most genial Provençaux, the straightforward dog "Boy"—Toujours Provence is a heart-warming portrait of a place where, if you can't quite "get away from it all," you can surely have a very good time trying.

Симпатична и приятна за четене книга, даваща прекрасна възможност на "книжните пътешественици" като мен да получат доза бягство от забързания ни начин на живот. С характерното си свежо чувство за хумор, познато ни от "Една година в Прованс", Питър Мейл продължава да обрисува живописно ежедневието...

Peter Mayle writes about characters: Monsieur X, the truffle hunter; Massot with his metal detector; Boy, the dog, who ate the seat belt on his first car trip (and who apparently now has his own book, A Dog's Life). In Mayle's hands, the place of Provence and the French language become characters...

Еще одна душевная книга про Прованс. Очень понравились эти маленькие истории про людей, про традиции, про еду и вино. Эх, махнуть бы сейчас туда на недельку, другую!

After rereading A Year in Provence, my next logical book to read was Toujours Provence, Peter Mayle's follow-up to the wildly successful A Year in Provence. To be honest, while I could remember reading the first book, I had no recollection of reading Toujours Provence and now I remember why. ::: W...

I just discovered Peter Mayle last fall when I traveled to Provence, but now I think it's safe to say that I'm obsessed and I simply can't resist anything he has written. (Okay, I haven't tried any of his fiction, although it's on the list.) While Toujours Provence isn't my favorite of his travel...

A random collection of vignettes about the casual life of a man and his wife. Visiting friends, eating, living without clocks and eating, going out and eating. In a sense a good life to experience, a horrendously boring traveling blog to read. And I think I also have a problem with the style how...

2nd in Mayle's very popular Provence trilogy, personal essays about his life and experiences there. It's fluff, but very enjoyable fluff, and while not quite as entertaining as the 1st, I easily lost myself in the pages, and recommend it. Lovely pen and ink drawings throughout by Judith Clancy ar...

I really enjoyed this book. Peter Mayle writes about his daily life in Provence. It continues where a A Year in Provence leaves off. It is a great read and really made me want to travel to that region of France. I definitely want to read his other books as well.

Fun, little stories from the man that brought us, A Year in Provence. I love books that immerse me in a different culture. Oh, how the French enjoy their food :)

The best part about reading a book is traveling to places on other parts of the globe. When reading a memoir you get a personal look at things from the writer’s perspective, making it feel like you’re traveling vicariously without ever stepping into an airplane. Tourjours Provence allowed me a w...
