Read full description of the books:
Jeune encore et déjà lassé du sombre et bruyant Paris, Alphonse Daudet vient passer les étés dans son moulin de Fontvielle, " piqué comme un papillon " sur la colline parmi les lapins. Dans cette ruine ensoleillée de la vallée du Rhône, naissent ces contes immortels qui assureront sa gloire.Au loin, on entend la trompe de Monsieur Seguin sonnant sa jolie chèvre blanche. Dans le petit bois de chênes verts, un sous-préfet s'endort en faisant des vers. Au ciel, où les étoiles se marient entre elles, le curé de Cucugnan compte ses malheureux paroissiens. Et dans la ville voisine, un jeune paysan meurt d'amour pour une petite Arlésienne tout en velours et dentelles qu'on ne verra jamais.Le vieux moulin abandonné est devenu l'âme et l'esprit de la Provence. Dans le silence des Alpilles ou le tapage des cigales et des tambourins, parfumés d'émotions, de sourires et de larmes, ces contes semblent frappés d'une éternelle jeunesse.

Read information about the authorAlphonse Daudet (13 May 1840 – 16 December 1897) was a French novelist. He was the younger brother of Ernest Daudet. He was married to Julia Daudet and the father of Léon Daudet,Lucien Daudet and Edmée Daudet, all writers.
Aphonse Daudet was born in Nîmes, France. His family, on both sides, belonged to the bourgeoisie. The father, Vincent Daudet, was a silk manufacturer — a man dogged through life by misfortune and failure. Alphonse, amid much truancy, had a depressing boyhood. In 1856 he left Lyon, where his schooldays had been mainly spent, and began life as a schoolteacher at Alès, Gard, in the south of France. The position proved to be intolerable. As Dickens declared that all through his prosperous career he was haunted in dreams by the miseries of his apprenticeship to the blacking business, so Daudet says that for months after leaving Alès he would wake with horror, thinking he was still among his unruly pupils.
On 1 November 1857, he abandoned teaching and took refuge with his brother Ernest Daudet, only some three years his senior, who was trying, "and thereto soberly," to make a living as a journalist in Paris. Alphonse took to writing, and his poems were collected into a small volume, Les Amoureuses (1858), which met with a fair reception. He obtained employment on Le Figaro, then under Cartier de Villemessant's energetic editorship, wrote two or three plays, and began to be recognized, among those interested in literature, as possessing individuality and promise. Morny, Napoleon III's all-powerful minister, appointed him to be one of his secretaries — a post which he held till Morny's death in 1865 — and showed Daudet no small kindness. Daudet had put his foot on the road to fortune.
