Poet of the appetites : the lives and loves of M.F.K. Fisher by Joan Reardon( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In more than thirty books, M.F.K. Fisher forever changed the way Americans understood not only the art of eating but also the art of living. Whether considering the oyster or describing how to cook a wolf, she addressed the universal needs "for food and security and love." Readers were instantly drawn into her circle of husbands and lovers, artists and artisans; they felt they knew Fisher herself, whether they encountered her as a child with a fried-egg sandwich in her pocket, a young bride awakening to the glories of French food, or a seductress proffering the first peas of the season." "Oldest child, wife, mother, mistress, self-made career woman, trailblazing writer - Fisher served up each role with panache. But like many other master stylists, she was also a master mythologizer. Her portraits and scenarios were often unrecognizable to those on whom they were based, and her own emotions and experiences remained cloaked in ambiguity."--Jacket
A stew or a story : an assortment of short works by M.F.K. Fisher by Joan Reardon( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Stew or a Story covers five decades of Fisher's writing for such notable publications as Gourmet, Bon Appetit, Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Bazaar, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Ladies' Home Journal, and Vogue. But collected here also are articles nearly impossible to find from lesser-known, more ephemeral magazines. Essays on people, places, and of course food, mix here with delightful fiction to become a delectable feast."--Jacket

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"M. F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, and Alice Waters celebrates the accomplishments and friendships of three women who changed the way Americans think about food and cooking, dining and pleasure." "In a series of three overlapping biographical portraits, Reardon reveals the private lives behind their public personas. Tracing major developments in their careers and quoting extensively from letters they exchanged, she recounts the times and places at which their lives intersected and shares testimonies of the friendship and respect that grew among them."--Jacket
