Our beloved book critic Don George is back this month reviewing the latest tome from Peter Mayle, a writer who first inspired us to pack our bags two decades ago with his best-selling A Year in Provence. His latest, The Vintage Caper, revisits Provence through a story of a multi-million-dollar heist of French wines from a Hollywood collector. “As our protagonists track the precious bottles, the trail leads–naturellement! –through a succession of excellent repasts and leisurely ambles, which Mayle depicts with painterly ease and signature savoir vivre,” George writes.
