THE MULE OF AVIGNON

Daudet's charmingly euphoric account of how the Pope's favorite mule, after seven patient years, gets back at a former tormentor who has since schemed himself into the Holy Father's favor. Lawrence's Dufy-like medieval scenes in splashy bright color invite us to bask in Daudet's sunny long-ago of wine and flowers, when good kind Boniface ruled a prosperous and peaceful people given to dancing sur le pont.
