Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oddly, I've met 2 or 3 other people who claim to have run into Peter Mayle. All noted he was pretty drunk at the time.

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

I can do mediocre prose, but the trouble is everybody's at it these days. He had the virtue of being first.
