Reviews

"Pagnol lived what he made movies and wrote about.... More than just the reminiscences of a happy childhood, these pages resonate with the inspirational qualities of all Pagnol's work: the good humor, the love of nature, the sensuality, and the strong feeling for family and tradition." --Alice Waters

"Marcel Pagnol has taught me a great deal more than anyone would guess. In his final moments Pagnol became almost godlike in his mix of deep understanding and earthy enjoyment, his hilarious and compassionate understanding of the people of Marseilles and Provence." --M. F. K. Fisher
