Seeking Provence: Old Myths, New Paths (Armchair Traveller)by Nicholas Woodsworth
Synopses & Reviews
Unearthing a Provence beyond the idea of a holiday home for the rich moved south for the summer, this book explores the cultural idiosyncrasies and deeply anchored heritage of this Mediterranean land. It offers a profound reflection on a way of life that, the author tells us, is still worth living today.
"Like Tuscany, Provence has been trampled over by too many writers in recent years. But Nicholas Woodsworth, a former Africa correspondent for the Financial Times and a Provencal by marriage, looks as though he could break the curse of Mayle. I’m giving him a chance." — William Grimes for the New York Times
Canadian born author and rolling stone discovers the earthy yet exhilarating Mediterranean roots of his Provencal
