"It is a special pleasure to open a book of nearly 500 pages and hear on each one of them the distinctive, quirky, personable, contradictory and altogether artful Fisher voice." —New York Times Book Review

In these pages, M.F.K. 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 personal pieces reveal some of Fisher’s most private moments over six decades, giving ample display to her sharp wit and affectionate humor, her ongoing reflections on loss and the power to change.

M.F.K. FISHER wrote twenty-six books, including A Cordiall Water, Last House, and How to Cook a Wolf. Widely known as the woman who elevated food writing to a literary art, she was elected to the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and received lifetime achievement awards from the James Beard Foundation and The American Institute of Wine and Food.
