Author Peter Mayle

For pure escapism, time and time again, we turn to Peter Mayle's books chronicling his life as an expatriate living in Provence, France.  The British author is a gifted travel writer and a lover of fine food and wine.  

As the reader, we live vicariously through Mayle as he befriends the local truffle hunters, prowls the Sunday-morning markets and feasts on mouth-watering french cuisine.  The four book series is a trip well taken.
