Sequel to 'A Year In Provence'.
A year in Provence has passed . . . yet the dream lives on. And Peter Mayle, now known throughout the Luberon as 'The English Ecrevisse', slowly begins to turn native in the old stone farmhouse at the foot of the mountains between Avignon and Aix.
'Toujours Provence' finds him skulking through British Customs with a suitcase full of truffles, tracking down a man whose ambition is to make toads sing the "Marseillaise", taking pastis lessons and looking nervously over his shoulder at forest fires.
From vantage points as varied as the Cannes Film Festival, the caves at Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Menerbes Dog Show, Peter Mayle hilariously and memorably recounts the pleasures and pitfalls of the Provencal paradise - for today and for ever.
