Book News Annotation:
Having served 15 years as a writer and executive in the advertising industry in New York, Mayle here sends back his seventh account of life in the south of France where he has found refuge. Among his latest adventures are a meal in a converted gas station and a rendezvous with the very best bouillabaisse. Index? Ha! If you are in that much hurry you would not appreciate it anyway.
