Abstract:

"In more than thirty books, M.F.K. Fisher forever changed the way Americans understood not only the art of eating but also the art of living. Whether considering the oyster or describing how to cook a wolf, she addressed the universal needs "for food and security and love." Readers were instantly drawn into her circle of husbands and lovers, artists and artisans; they felt they knew Fisher herself, whether they encountered her as a child with a fried-egg sandwich in her pocket, a young bride awakening to the glories of French food, or a seductress proffering the first peas of the season." "Oldest child, wife, mother, mistress, self-made career woman, trailblazing writer - Fisher served up each role with panache. But like many other master stylists, she was also a master mythologizer. Her portraits and scenarios were often unrecognizable to those on whom they were based, and her own emotions and experiences remained cloaked in ambiguity."--Jacket.
