From Here, You Can't See Paris: Seasons of a French Village and Its Restaurant Reviews

  • Suzanne
    Great book about a family's year in a very small town in southwest France and the town's restaurant. It takes you on a tour of the markets and farms where French food is grown and raised (vegetarians beware the chapter on foie gras), and really gives a sense of what a traditional small Fench village...

    I read every book whose them is "observations of an American transplanted in France." And most are pretty predictable: American discovers just how ultimately satisfying it can be to learn to enjoy life like the French. This is much the same, but done very well. Author, wife, and young child spend a ...

    This book was so respectful of life in the village where the author lived for year. Having read almost all of Peter Mayle's books, I found this to be a step above.

There were plenty of times throughout the course of this book where I felt he could have written the exact same thing in half the space. Still enjoyable, except for the desc...

    I was wandering by a display in my local library and picked out this book. I have only been to France once - to Paris for 4 days. I admit I have romantic imaginings about the French countryside dancing in my head. So, I thought I'd indulge those fantasies by reading this book. It is non-fiction and ...
  • Joje
    Half way through as of today. A gift from Nancy last year. A good tale of a village with the details that inform. Even if so much is familiar and recognizable to one who lives partly in French villages, there are other sections that are newly informative, especially about the agricultural past in th...

    Pretty boring, especially compared to all the really great similar stuff out there....
