Letters from My Windmill

Author(s): Alphonse Daudet

Classic fiction

Alphonse Daudet's novels established him as the most successful writer in France by the end of the XIX century. Throughout his working life in Paris Daudet never lost his almost umbilical attachment to Provence. Here, he presents tales of that region that are characterised by tenderness and delicacy, as well as wistfulness and wry humour.
