Ten Trees and a Truffle Dog: Sniffing Out the Perfect Plot in Provence

Jamie Ivey. Skyhorse, $24.95 (240p) ISBN 978-1-62087-635-0
In his fourth travel memoir on France (Extremely Pale Rosé, etc.), Ivey paints a romantic portrait of the simple pleasures of Provence. With soaring prose, the author takes the reader on a journey through both major life changes and seemingly simple events, with the South of France as backdrop. From the birth of his daughter, to the acquisition of property and the striking up of friendship with a new truffle-hunting dog, Ivey elicits on the part of the reader an appetite for more of the small French province, known for its wines and cuisine. Sparked by his love of wine and need to escape the wired life of London, Ivey makes the trip to France to start a new adventure. Having lived in Provence as a permanent “foreigner,” Ivey is pleasantly surprised when a seemingly perfect plot of land comes up for grabs. What makes it so special is the abundance of truffles there. Written with a clear love for the Provencial lifestyle, this book is perfect for those interested in the South of France. (May)
