Towards the end of his career, Pagnol was asked to write his autobiography in serial format for a magazine.  The result was this charming account of  his idyllic childhood in Marseille and in the surrounding area for  his holiday. 

Pagnol captures the nature of childhood and particularly worship of one's father and the way this is gradually tempered by experience.  He also pictures an environment which is in short supply in Provence, the garrigue.
