Product Description

About the Author

Peter Mayle spent fifteen years in the advertising business before escaping Madison Avenue in 1975 to write an extensive series of books centered around life in his beloved Provence. His work has been translated into dozens of languages and he has contributed to a variety of newspapers, magazines, and television productions. A Year in Provence won the British Book Awards' Best Travel Book of the Year. He and his wife live in Provence.
 
Patrick Macnee was born in 1922 in London, England. He first appeared on stage and made his film debut as an extra in Pygmalion. After World War II, he resumed his stage and film career, with bit parts such as Young Jacob Marley in Scrooge. The role that brought him worldwide fame and popularity was the part of John Steed, in the classic British television series The Avengers. During the 1980s and 1990s, he became a familiar face on American television in such series as Gavilan, Empire, Thunder in Paradise and Night Man. Patrick has recorded a number of audiobooks including eight of Jack Higgins' thrillers and Peter Mayle's Toujours Provence.

Format: Audio Cassette
Our whole family has enjoyed being transported to Provence by these tapes while on long distance driving trips. The readers voices conveyed perfectly the flavor and humor of these stories, and wheted our desires to join the author in the bucolic splendor of the French countryside. After a year I still recall the feeling of the warm summer sun and the icy winter winds, the tastes of the provincial restaurants, and the uniqueness of the neighbors and friends we met and enjoyed via these remarkable tapes. Were that all books on tape were as well done and captivating. Highly recommended if you would like to savor the unexpected joys of an often not-so-quiet country retreat.
