Product Overview

Peter Mayle sets his latest irresistible tale in the thyme- and lavender-scented south of France. Bennett, a suave if slightly threadbare English ex-patriot who is fast approaching the end of his credit, advertises his "services" in The International Herald Tribune. In no time, he is being paid handsomely to impersonate the mysterious and very wealthy Julian Poe.

Author Info
Peter Mayle
Peter Mayle is known for talking about three primary things: good food, good wine, and France. The latter serves as the larger context for his notoriety as a travel-writer and connoisseur of gastrointestinal luxuries. After a British birth and rearing, after time served on Madison Avenue as an ad executive, and after a stint as a writer of children's books, Mayle and his wife made Provence their home and the epicenter from which his tomes on good living have sprung. First inspired to investigate the culture of Provence by an M.F.K. Fisher book picked up while he was living in Britain, Mayle needed little convincing to purchase a home there after his visit to the area in the 1980s. He chronicled the experience of living in Provence for his first book published in 1991, A YEAR IN PROVENCE, that won him international acclaim. Since then, he has produced works of both fiction and nonfiction, all of which focus on the merits of his adopted home.
"With 'Anything Considered', Mr. Mayle has written an entertaining thriller that moves along apace, but his loyal readers need not worry. Much of his raw material is familiar....It is, of course, vintage Mayle: all the twists and turns...revolve around something to eat. As it happens, the plot is not that improbable."
"Happily, Peter Mayle's 'Anything Considered' meets all the prerequisites for perfect August reading....Make no mistake: 'Anything Considered' is like a perfectly unnecessary pleasure, like smoking a Cuban cigar or enjoying a cool glass of rosé alone on a summer's evening. But for anyone who has visited Southern France, or lost his heart to Grace Kelly in 'To Catch a Thief', or longed to be swept up in a glamorous chapter, this is just what a vacation book should be. It won't change your life but it will send you, after a long day under a beach umbrella, to sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing."
"A sinister plot to corner the truffles market provides the backdrop for another delightful trek through the French countryside in this third novel from the ever-popular Mayle."
