[EAN: 9780307269010], [PU: Knopf], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Peter Mayle . . . has been celebrating the pleasures of Provence in seductive prose since the mega-bestselling A Year in Provence . . . This tradition flourishes anew in his latest Provenal picaresque, The Vintage Caper . . . The [novel's] trail leads- naturellement! -through a succession of excellent repasts and leisurely ambles, which Mayle depicts with painterly ease and signature savoir vivre . . . The wine case has enough twists and turns to propel the plot along, but the star of this caper is the vineyard-veined, lavender-scented, sun-showered, garlic-seasoned setting itself: pure Provence." -Don George, National Geographic Traveler (Book of the Month) "Meals are lovingly described, scenery comes to life, paragraphs take long floral detours. And everyone is blessed with hypersensitive taste buds . . . By the time Levitt returns to America, readers will have learned much about the history of winemaking, the key wine regions, various auction houses, critics and books-and even how to lift fingerprints from bottles." -James Oliver Curry, The New York Times Book Review "A lighthearted romp through Bordeaux and Marseille, in which picking the right restaurant, choosing the best dish on the menu and, of course, finding the perfect wine (and female companion) to accompany the feast is every bit as important as catching the thief . . . Bon apptit!" -Bernadette Murphy, Los Angeles Times "Wine and food aficionados will find much to savor in The Vintage Caper . . . The Vintage Caper is light, funny, and packed with a menu's worth of scrumptious descriptions of exceptional dinners and drinks." -Carol Memmott, USA Today "A trip to France for 25 dollars? No, it's not a super-discount on Air France, it's a book, another Peter Mayle flight of fancy . . . It's a smooth ride you'll enjoy from beginning to end . . . Peter Mayle's love of France is infectious." -John Greenya, The Washington Post "This novel provides a delightful behind-the-scenes tour of France and its wines, a satisfyingly satirical view of materialistic excesses in America, a mystery that keeps the reader guessing, and a pleasing, robust finish." -Scotia W. MacRae, Philadelphia Inquirer "Relentlessly entertaining . . . Peter Mayle has concocted a shameless guilty-pleasure bonbon in The Vintage Caper ." - Raleigh News-Observer "Mayle's prose bubbles with the pertness of champagne and teems with sumptuous delights . . . His story has as many unexpected twists as the wending streets of France that are featured throughout the novel, making this one countryside romp that will both thrill and transport oenophiles and armchair travelers alike." -Cathy Shouse, Bookpage "Mayle uncorks a winning wine caper . . . The pleasures of this very French adventure-and there are many-aren't in the resolution . . . but in the pleasant stroll through the provinces and in the glasses of wine downed and decadent meals consumed." -Publishers Weekly "Mayle delivers . . . good, clean writing; a sophisticated and mouthwatering use of good and wine as the story's upholstery; and a quick yet captivating plot, well sprinkled with humor. This novel is a special invitation for newbies to begin appreciating Mayle's talent as a writer." - Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

The Vintage Caper - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9780307269010

ID: 868856

Set in Hollywood, Paris, Bordeaux, and Marseille, Peter Mayle's newest and most delightful novel is filled with culinary delights, sumptuous wines, and colorful characters. It's also a lot of fun. The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the "Los Angeles Times" to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist. Enter Sam Levitt, former corporate lawyer, cultivated crime expert, and wine connoisseur. Called in by Roth's insurance company, which is now saddled with a multimillion-dollar claim, Sam follows his leads--to Bordeaux and its magnificent vineyards, and to Provence to meet an eccentric billionaire collector who might possibly have an interest in the stolen wines. Along the way, "bien sur, " he is joined by a beautiful and erudite French colleague, and together they navigate many a chateau, pausing frequently to enjoy the countryside's abundant pleasures. The unraveling of the ingenious crime is threaded through with Mayle's seductive rendering of France's sensory delights--from a fine Lynch-Bages and Leoville Barton to the bouillabaisse of Marseille and the young lamb of Bordeaux. Even the most sophisticated of oenophiles will learn a thing or two from this vintage work by a beloved author. The Vintage Caper Mayle, Peter, Knopf Publishing Group

A Q & A with Peter Mayle Question: The Vintage Caper begins and ends in Los Angeles, which you've not explored before in your writing. What led you to set parts of the book there? Are you a fan of the city? Peter Mayle: The inspiration for the story came from California, and so L.A. seemed a logical place to start. Also, I had long cherished an urge to stay at the Chateau Marmont, which I was able to do in the worthy name of research. Very nice it was too. As for the city, I was unable to find the centre, but those parts I did see I enjoyed. Question: Where did the character of Danny Roth come from? Peter Mayle: Danny Roth is a mixture of several movie people and agents I've met over the years-quick-witted, talkative and relentlessly self-absorbed. Question: This book is a bit of a love letter to the city of Marseille, which isn't a place that usually inspires such rapturous praise. Do you think it's underrated? Peter Mayle: Marseille is certainly underrated, and I think it still suffers from the reputation gained in The French Connection.Marseille's problem is that it is not a city that makes an effort to put itself out for strangers. It is what it is, take it or leave it-patches of squalor next to buildings and contemporary,europe,france,general,literature and fiction,mystery,mystery thriller and suspense,travel Mystery, Knopf
