For the world is on the move, and the vignerons of Clochemerle, tending the Beaujolais grapes, are forced to move with it.The age of jazz has reached the heart of rural France, and the girls dance to new tunes.

The age of motoring has also arrived. Eugène Fadet opens a garage- speeding becomes a danger to life and limb. Electricity, the telephone, and, above all, the cinema have a startling effect on manners which have remained unchanged for generations. And the invasion of American culture shocks the older generation and captivates all too many of the young. Clochemerle is in danger of becoming the modern Babylon.The slump has its consequences and the fall in the price of wine leads to unimagined hardships, and much time is spent in discussing politics and the strange new conceptions of democracy.
