I don't understand why so many people think Frances Mayes hates having guests. She wasn't complaining about all of her guests; just the clueless and boorish ones who invited themselves, slept until noon, and didn't understand that she and Ed had work to do and couldn't spend every waking minute entertaining them. And for those of you who keep comparing Mayes to Peter Mayle, Mayle also criticized/made fun of guests he didn't like. Remember Tony from A Year in Provence?? Even if that wasn't his real name, Mayle still took the time to physically describe him so that the man would no doubt recognize himself when he read the book.
