Requirements: .ePUB reader, 667 KB
Overview: A "focused, smart, and engaging" look at the turbulent private life of the pioneering food writer who taught America the art of eating well (Publishers Weekly).
In An Extravagant Hunger, the turning points and casual strolls of M.F.K. Fisher’s life are unwrapped and savored. From the RMS Berengaria that ferried 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 moments of her life, the stories of Fisher’s love for food, family, and men are meticulously researched and exquisitely captured in this book. Exploring Fisher’s formative time in Europe with her first husband; her subsequent divorce and remarriage to her creative spark plug, Dillwyn Parrish, and his tragic suicide; and the child she carried from an unnamed father, the story of M.F.K. Fisher’s life becomes as vibrant and passionate as her prolific words on wine and cuisine.
