I suppose I see this book as being about a dream and sharing some of the highlights of that dream with others. Many readers, like myself, have read it for enjoyment and bit of relaxing escapism. Who would not want to relax under a warm sun seemingly doing little except exploring the food and wine of the area? I am sure there was much more to his life in the region but the book is not meant to be about the totality of his life. It is about conveying a sense of fun and it does this well.
Peters style of writing is just superb, full of wit and humour, and I love the way he describes the local characters. The area of Provence sounds idyllic, and I would love to visit this area of France in the future.
I suppose we would all like to up sticks and move to somewhere like Provence and live the dream. All in all, this is a great read, recommended.
