Publisher Comments:

The bestsellling author of A Year in Provence and Hotel Pastis now surveys his territory from a differnt vantage point: the all-fours perspective of his dog, Boy--"a dog whose personality is made up of equal parts Boswell and Dr. Johnson, Mencken and A. A. Milne" (Chicago Sun-Times). Enhanced by 59 splendidly whimsical drawings by Edward Koren.

About the Author

Peter Mayle spent fifteen years in the advertising business, first as a copywriter and then as a reluctant executive, before escaping Madison Avenue in 1975 to write educational books for children.  In 1990, Mr. Mayle published A Year in Provence, which became an international bestseller.  He is also the author of Toujours Provence, Hotel Pastis, Encore Provence, Anything Considered and Chasing Cezanne.  In addition to writing books which have been translated into more than twenty languages, Mayle has contributed to the Sunday Times, Financial Times, Independent, GQ and Esquire.  He and his wife and two dogs live in the South of France.

DONNA HERRICK, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by DONNA HERRICK)
What a marvellous way to end the year...consumed by laughter! Of all Peter Mayle's books (and I have read every one--some of them twice) this is the best. Mayle holds a mirror up to us and shows the human race how funny, odd, endearing and confusing we appear to our four legged companions. Read it! Enjoy it! SMILE!
