Description
"The hunger for more and more insight into the life of M.F.K. Fisher continues unabated. [Anne] Zimmerman draws on the archives of Fisher's papers for this detailed account of the early years of the great gastronome and food writer.... The aesthetic pleasures of good eating attracted her early on, and she was able to focus herself on the details of tastes, smells, and colors of just about everything she put in her mouth. College, first in Illinois, then back in California, introduced her to a host of new friends and to her first husband, Al Fisher. Embarking on a honeymoon abroad, they eventually ended up in Dijon, France, which proved to be her spiritual home. Zimmerman details the marriage's breakup, Fisher's remarriage, her second husband's suicide, and her contrarian attitudes about life and love."Booklist

"Zimmerman has captured the passionate apprenticeship and wandering years, with all their turmoil and pleasure interwoven with pain, which created such a marvelous writer and such an enduringly luminous woman."Washington Post
