From the moment Peter Mayle and his wife, Jennie, uprooted their lives in England and crossed the Channel permanently, they never looked back. Here the beloved author of A Year in Provence pays tribute to the most endearing and enduring aspects of his life in France—the charming and indelible parade of village life, the sheer beauty, the ancient history. He celebrates the café and lists some of his favorites; identifies his favorite villages, restaurants, and open-air markets; and recounts his most memorable meals. A celebration of twenty-five years of Provençal living—of lessons learned and changes observed—with his final book Mayle has crafted a lasting love letter to his adopted home, marked by his signature warmth, wit, and humor.

Celebrated by writers from Petrach to Peter Mayle, Provence's rugged mountains, wild maquis, and lavender-filled meadows are world-famous. Martin Garrett explores a region littered with ancient monuments and medieval castles. Looking at the vibrant dockside atmosphere of Lub�ron, he considers how writers like Mistral and Daudet have captured the character of a place and its people. He traces the development of Provence as a Roman outpost, medieval kingdom, and modern region of France, revealing through its landmarks the people and events that have shaped its often tumultuous history. Through its architecture, literature, and popular culture, this book analyzes and celebrates the identity of a region famous for its pastis and p�tanque. Linking the past to the present, it also evokes the intense light and sun-baked stones that have attracted generations of painters and writers.

INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS. What other artist created more striking works or left a more dramatic mark on the art world than Vincent van Gogh? His prolific final months on this earth -- times when he was seriously ill, fragile, suffering, and isolated -- were crammed with an urgency to create his artistic legacy, unmatched by any subsequent artist. This book celebrates the marvels of his pioneering vision during his years at Arles through his final days in Auvers. This spectacular text makes use of a unique combination of elements to reveal the life of Van Gogh as it was enhanced and transformed in his art. Real-life photos of the people and places he painted are grouped with sketches or final versions of the paintings. Details of paintings are enlarged, and most striking of all, excerpts from the artist's diaries and letters comment on his subjects and on his aims in particular paintings.
