'What was a year in Provence compared with three thousand years in Provence? Peter Mayle had hardly invented the place - surely it has to exist in another, more authentic version. No place remains a centre of Mediterranean life for that long without leaving something of itself behind.' With these musings Nicholas Woodsworth peers deeply into the Provencal life and soul. He had with him the key to much of it; 'In fact I had to look no further than my wife Jany and the large Provencal family I had married into to see hints of its ongoing survival in everything they did and said. Buried, sometimes obscure, often mystifying, an older Latin experience still lay deeply anchored in them and the places they inhabited.'This is the Provence that lies beyond the notion that it is really just the stockbroker's belt moved south for the Summer, one more invitation to the Good Life. And that it is different to be a Mediterranean, an older more fundamental way of life that is still worth learning and living today. Nicholas Woodsworth sets out on a journey to discover another Provence, a place of obscure and out of the way places.Biographie de l'auteur :
