Abstract:

"From the Journals of M.F.K. Fisher combines into one volume three acclaimed collections of journals, correspondence, and short stories, the earliest piece written when Fisher was nineteen and the last composed shortly before her death in 1992, at age eighty-three." "To Begin Again gives us a portrait of Fisher's early years, from her family's migration to California in 1912 to her first marriage in 1929. Here she begins to learn about the art of "living well gastronomically" and acquires an appreciation for the nurturance of both body and soul. Stay Me, Oh Comfort Me presents a candid portrait of the most traumatic period of Fisher's life - her divorce from her husband, her marriage to their friend Dillwyn Parrish, and Parrish's tragic illness and death. Last House offers a wry look at an artist grappling with old age and illness, and a poignant remembrance of the experiences that shaped her life's work."--Jacket.
