A life in letters : correspondence, 1929-1991

by:Fisher, M. F. K. (Mary Frances Kennedy), 1908-1992

In these pages, Fisher's letters are made public for the first time. Selected and compiled by her younger sister, her longtime secretary, and a close family friend, these highly personal pieces reveal some of Fisher's most private moments, giving ample display to her sharp wit and affectionate humor, her ongoing reflections on loss and the power of change. Six decades of correspondence sketch the story of a young adult who shouldered enormous domestic responsibilities as daughter, mother, and wife - a sensuous woman who managed to find success as a writer despite a paucity of money, time, and occasionally, spirit. These letters give voice to the self-doubt that lingered behind her strong public persona and tell of her long struggle to find a place in the world - not only as a writer but as a person. M.F.K. Fisher: A Life in Letters features an introduction by Anne Lamott, and includes thirty-two pages of photographs from Fishers' family collection.

Conversations with M.F.K. Fisher

by:Fisher, M. F. K. (Mary Frances Kennedy), 1908-1992

This collection of interviews captures the conversations of a writer about whom the Chicago Sun-Times says, "She is to literary prose what Sir Laurence Olivier is to acting or Willie Mays is to baseball." These interviews reveal M.F.K. Fisher's fierce wit and her uncompromising and frequently contradictory attitudes toward the luxuries and necessities of gastronomy - the idea that sensual appreciation, in all aspects of life, is or should be necessary.

From the journals of M.F.K. Fisher

by:Fisher, M. F. K. (Mary Frances Kennedy), 1908-1992

"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.
