About the Author

Jean Giono was a French author who wrote works of fiction mostly set in the Provence region of France.

Reviews

In Giono's work is what every sensitive, full-blooded individual ought to be able to recognize at once as the song of the world.'...The philosophy behind this symphonic production has no name: its function is to liberate, to keep open all the sluices of the soul, to encourage speculation, adventure, and passionate worship. --Henry Miller

Giono's sensuous eye for detail, his fine insight into human behavior and the scope and resonance of his language transform every landscape, every encounter between his characters, into an intimate, almost physical experience. --The New York Times Book Review

One of the twentieth century's greatest and wisest novels. --The Nation
