The Magic Of Provence. When Yvone Lenard returned to her native France and purchased a house in a hilltop village of Provence, an enchanted world of food, wines, and unusual adventures–including chicken rustling, flirtatious advances from neighbors, and a séance–opened up before her. This is her account of the spell cast on her by Provence, from her first morning’s visit by a charming prince bearing a jug of the village’s vin rose to the growth of her friendship with a duchess in the local chateau. Lenard shares tales of travels to St. Tropez and visits from American friends who find unexpected romance and magic in Provence. Told with verve, wit, and Lenard’s deep understanding of the French language and culture, this memoir includes tales of others who have been drawn to the region, including Vincent van Gogh, Brigitte Bardot, and Princess Caroline of Monaco. Ways to re-create the magic of the region’s sensuous way of life include recipes for food and drinks, as well as tips for entertaining in the Provençal style. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A Taste For Provence. Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz explains how Provencewhich a mid-twentieth-century tour guide called mostly dry, scrubby, rocky, arid land became a land of desire associated with a slower, richer way of life. Horowitz reveals the social forces and individuals who created the idea of Provence both in France and, critically, in the United States. Horowitz demystifies Provence and the perpetuation of its image today, even as she revels in its atmospheric, cultural, and culinary allures. Answering her key question-- What did Americans know about Provence and when did they know it? --takes us back to Thomas Jefferson s travels there and through to the mid-20th-century construction of it as a light-filled, relaxing idyll."

. Жан Одинак – власник книжкової баржі «Літературна аптека» – точно знає, як вилікувати почуття, що не вважаються захворюваннями й не діагностуються лікарями. Адже він – читач душ, тож кожному покупцеві добирає книги, які якнайкраще впораються із завданням вилікувати людський смуток, тугу чи зневіру. Єдиний, кого Жан не може зцілити, − це він сам. Душевні терзання від спогадів про Манон, котра покинула месьє Одинака двадцять один рік тому, розбили йому серце і досі тривожать душевні рани. Усе, що вона залишила, − лист, який Жан ніяк не наважується прочитати. Усе змінюється одного літнього дня після зустрічі з Катрін, глибоку печаль якоїмесьє Одинак сподівається вилікувати. Саме цей момент став переломним у житті Жана. Він вирушає в подорож до місця найболючіших спогадів – серця Провансу, аби пережити час страждань і віднайти себе.
