Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of TOUJOURS PROVENCE, by Peter Mayle and published by Hamish Hamilton in 1991. Flatsigned by the author on the title page (see picture below).

The book is in near fine condition (clean black boards and bright silver lettering on spine) with some minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (couple of creases to inside flaps, fingernail tear to one corner, nothing immediately apparent). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. Light smudges to one or two pages but no text is affected.

Skulking through British Customs with a suitcase full of truffles, tracking down a man whose ambition is to make toads sing the 'Marseillaise', finding gold at the bottom of the garden, taking pastis lessons, and looking nervously over his shoulder at forest fires, you might think that he has little time to spare for the pleasures of the table.

But with the help of the gourmet in the tracksuit and the man who brings two dozen bottles of wine with him to lunch, the stomach is served often and well, from a relais routier to a restaurant tres serieux in Avignon, as well as a stagecoach picnic in the mountains and Pavarotti's secret dinner.

From vantage points as varied as the Cannes Film Festival, the caves at Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Menerbes Dog Show, you will see that life in Provence is far from the quiet and uneventful existence suggested by those postcards of empty villages and picturesque peasants. All kinds of characters are lurking in the lavender: estate agents, a disgraced gendarme, reporters from Vogue and, hot off the autoroute and baying for social activity, the summer invaders.

Toujours Provence proves beyond any doubt that while you may not be able to get away from it all, at least you can have fun trying.

213 pages with illustrations by Kevin Hart.
