I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir. The author and his wife have managed a brilliant balance between spending time in France and their home in the USA. Following their trials with language tussles, French manners, rampaging bulls, wine tastings and fuel strikes, we are treated to exquisite vignettes of life in and around Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Read it in one sitting as I did, or dip into it as the mood takes you. It's a treat.
