4 1-hour cassettesFrom the Inside Flap:
From Peter Mayle, the exploits of his beloved dog, Boy, who made a starring debut in Toujours Provence.
Now, Boy, an uncannily perspicacious and shaggy canine of undetermined origin, takes center stage, recounting his event-filled life in the French countryside. From his humble beginnings fighting siblings for liquid sustenance, until the day he establishes undisputed control of the Mayle household, Boy recounts his village life as a bachelor, his contempt for hunters, his love (after a fashion) for chickens, his amorous interludes, his run-ins with plumbers and other human annoyances, his dinner party tidbits (literally), and other joyous and trying adventures in Mayle country.
Boy's understanding of human foibles and his stylistic insouciance (learned, no doubt, at his master's feet) make for a unique and rollicking memoir.
Hotel Pastis, by Peter Mayle, is also available as a Random House AudioBook.
