Texte du rabat

In "An Extravagant Hunger," time slows and is relished, and the turning points and casual strolls of M.F.K. Fisher's life are unwrapped and savored. From the "Berengaria" that washed her across the sea to France in 1929, to Le Paquis, the Swiss estate that later provided a backdrop for some of the most idyllic and fleeting moments of her life, Zimmerman exquisitely captures the breadth and stories of Fisher's love for food and her love for family and men. Exploring Fisher's lonely and formative time in Europe with her first husband; her subsequent divorce and re-marriage to her creative sparkplug, Dillwyn Parrish, and his tragic suicide; the story of M.F.K. Fisher's life becomes as vibrant and passionate as her prolific words on wine and cuisine. Letters and journal entries piece together a dramatic life, but "An Extravagant Hunger" steps further, bridging the gaps between personal notes and her public persona, filling in the silences by offering an engaging and unprecedented intuitive commentary. With a passion of her own, Anne Zimmerman is the cheerful witness, lingering beside M.F.K. Fisher through her most dramatic and productive years.
