“Depending on the inflection, ‘ah bon’ can express shock, disbelief, indifference, irritation, or joy - a remarkable achievement for two short words.”― Peter MaylePeter Mayle’s “Provence in Ten Easy Lessons: From Provence A-Z: A Francophile’s Essential Handbook” (an eBook Original) is Now available…No one knows Provence like beloved author Peter Mayle, and in this delightful collection—adapted from Provence A-Z: A Francophile’s Essential Handbook—he distills his decades of living in France into ten essential lessons for visitors. Abandoning the well-trodden “best of” routes that can be found in any tourist guide, Mayle highlights local features vital to an authentic Provençal experience. From ruminations on the unique charms of each season to the art of the siesta, Mayle brings the warmth and beauty of the province vividly to life. And, of course, food and wine also get their due, as Mayle expounds the merits of pastis and a good rosé, explores the mystery of traditional market shopping, and more. Evocative and intimate, Provence in Ten Easy Lessons is charming yet practical reading for ticketed passengers and armchair travelers, alike.

Imperfect things are always—
it seems—a wave
of some wand away
from perfection.

Good writing is always about things that are important to you, things that are scary to you, things that eat you up.
