Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I actually met Peter Mayle, he was thoroughly piss- drunk, in Sanary S/Mer where my wife had a shop, I was going to buy my cigarettes (was a smoker, like you, too back then, though Belgian at the time, not French).

Proof positive that mediocre prose, coupled with nostalgia and a little light exotism mixed in, can be milked for all it is worth.

The Hun is always either at your throat or at your feet. Winston Churchill
