READING: National Bestseller In this witty and warm-hearted account, Peter Mayle tells what it is like to realize a long-cherished dream and actually move into a 200-year-old stone farmhouse in the remote country of the Lubéron with his wife and two large dogs. He endures January's frosty mistral as it comes howling down the Rhône Valley, discovers the secrets of goat racing through the middle of town, and delights in the glorious regional cuisine. A Year in Provence transports us into all the earthy pleasures of Provençal life and lets us live vicariously at a tempo governed by seasons, not by days. From the Trade Paperback edition.

READING: Na het overlijden van haar echtgenoot komt Lisa Appignanesi terecht in een neerwaartse spiraal van rouw en woede. De emoties zijn zo overweldigend dat ze besluit de aard ervan te onderzoeken. Hoe reageer je als je geconfronteerd wordt met een onbegrijpelijk groot verlies? Appignanesi beschrijft drie generaties van gevoelens. Naast haar eigen rouw ontleedt ze de boosheid van haar vader, een Poolse migrant in Canada die zijn leven lang vernederingen doorstond. Ze verbindt zijn woede aan de hedendaagse maatschappelijke boosheid opgewekt door de komst van vluchtelingen. Verder duikt ze in de wereld van haar tweejarige kleinzoon, een wereld die overhoop is gehaald door de komst van zijn jongere broertje. Subtiel, met humor en oog voor detail vertelt ze verhalen die zeer persoonlijk maar tegelijkertijd universeel geldig zijn. Shakespeare, Freud, Proust, Sylvia Plath en John Cleese helpen haar om rouw, woede, verlies en liefde in kaart te brengen.

READING: In Cavaillon, there are seventeen bakers listed in the Pages Jaunes, but we had been told that one establishment was ahead of all the rest in terms of choice and excellence, a vertiable palais de pain. At Chez Auzet, so they said, the baking and eating of breads and pastries had been elevated to the status of a minor religion.' This was written in 1988 in one of Peter Mayle's notebooks as he researched A Year in Provence. And ever since his first visit, the Boulangerie Auzet has remained one of his favourite places in the world. Many more people came to visit the bakery after A Year in Provence was published, all wanting more than just bread. They wanted ingredients, recipes, tips - anything that might help them recreate Boulangerie Auzet in their own kitchens. Confessions of a French Baker will do just that. It will decribe how to make bread and pastries, the secret of handling dough correctly, the history of the shop, some anecdotes, hints and tips, in short, a way of bringing Boulangerie Auzet into your own home.

READING: De jaren tachtig. De verteller woont in een woongroep, het restant van een communistische commune, samen met zijn moeder, drie andere vrouwen, wat kinderen en goeroe Bert. De kinderen worden min of meer aan hun lot overgelaten terwijl de volwassenen veel met elkaar praten (het liefst naakt - 'Als je naakt bent, heb je geen schild,' zegt Bert), therapie doen, ruziemaken, en opnieuw met elkaar praten (weer naakt). Aan hun lerares op school hebben ze ook niets, want die gaat ook met Bert naar bed. De enige met wie de verteller enigszins kan opschieten, is Donnie. Als de kinderbescherming dreigt in te grijpen en de volwassenen allemaal in paniek raken, vat de verteller het plan op om samen met Donnie weg te lopen. Naar België. Want daar is de mayo beter.

READING: A delightful, delicious, and best-selling account of the gustatory pleasures to be found throughout France, from the beloved author of A Year in Provence. The French celebrate food and drink more than any other people, and Peter Mayle shows us just how contagious their enthusiasm can be. We visit the Foire aux Escargots. We attend a truly French marathon, where the beverage of choice is Château Lafite-Rothschild rather than Gatorade. We search out the most pungent cheese in France, and eavesdrop on a heated debate on the perfect way to prepare an omelet. We even attend a Catholic mass in the village of Richerenches, a sacred event at which thanks are given for the aromatic, mysterious, and breathtakingly expensive black truffle. With Mayle as our charming guide, we come away satisfied (if a little hungry), and with a sudden desire to book a flight to France at once.

READING: The ultimate “dictionary” for lovers of Provence: Peter Mayle's personal selection of the foods, customs and words he finds most fascinating, curious, delicious, or just plain fun. Though organized from A to Z, this is hardly a conventional work of reference. In more than 170 entries, Peter Mayle—bestselling author of A Year in Provence—writes about subjects as wide-ranging as architecture and zingue-zingue-zoun (in the local patois, a word meant to describe the sound of a violin). And, of course, he writes about food and drink: vin rosé, truffles, olives, melons, bouillabaisse, the cheese that killed a Roman emperor, even a cure for indigestion. Provence A-Z is a delight for Peter Mayle's ever-growing audience and the perfect complement to any guidebook on Provence, or, for that matter, France. From the Trade Paperback edition.

READING: 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. An eBook short.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Before his glorious retreat to Provence, delightfully chronicled in his best-sellers A Year in Provence and Toujours Provence, Peter Mayle made his career in advertising, beginning as a copywriter and finishing thirteen years later as a creative director ("I think I was also a vice president, " he writes "but I never had the cards printed"). Up the Agency is his caustic valentine to the culture of Madison Avenue, where the tribal customs and rituals are as wondrous to behold as the sights on any anthropological expedition. Treading fearlessly and wittily where no one without a customized BMW and matching Armani suit has gone before, Mayle dissects this odd and endlessly fascinating industry - where the speed of a new talent's ascent can be matched only by his shocking fall months later. Whether describing the perfect ad man, the frenzy and desperation of putting together a new campaign, or the treachery of the fickle product-buying public, Mayle brings his insightful eye to bear on this very funny business, which brings both pleasure and pain to millions - and millions to a few.
