Peter Mayle and his wife did what most of us only image doing when they made their long-cherished dream of a life abroad a reality: throwing caution to the wind, they bought a glorious 200-year-old farmhouse in the Luberon and began a new life. In a year that begins with a marathon lunch and continues with a host of gastronomique delights, they also survive the unexpected and often hilarious curiosities of rural life. From mastering the local accent and enduring invasion by bumbling builders, to discovering the finer points of boules and goat-racing, all the earthly pleasures of provencal life are conjured up in this portrait.

This book is an absolute gem! Who could resist a book that opens "The year began with lunch." ?
This type of autobiographical works is rarely done well, but when, like this one, it does work, you have a friend on your book shelf for life. It achieves exactly the right note of humour, both at the author's expense, and the expense of those around him.
So if you like hearing about good food, and other people's domestic frustrations, read, enjoy and grow envious.
If you don't (like the friend who gave this book to me to try, on the grounds that she found as dull as ****) try something different.
