Sister Age by M. F. K Fisher( Book )
17 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 1,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these fifteen remarkable stories, M.F.K. Fisher, one of the most admired writers of our time, embraces age as St. Francis welcomed Brother Pain. With a saint to guide us, she writes in her Foreword, perhaps we can accept in a loving way "the inevitable visits of a possibly nagging harpy like Sister Age" But in the stories, it is the human strength in the unavoidable encounter with the end of life that Mrs. Fisher dramatizes so powerfully. Other themes -- the importance of witnessing death, the marvelous resilience of the old, the passing of vanity -- are all explored with insight, sympathy and, often, a sly wit.

Elle fut aussi la traductrice en anglais de la Physiologie du goût, de Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. Son oeuvre complète est en cours de traduction. Mille anecdotes aussi divertissantes qu'appétissantes : de la façon dont on maltraite la pomme de terre et comment on peut lui rendre sa dignité ; de la parcimonie gastronomique des Grecs de l'Antiquité, de la gloutonnerie des Romains ; sans oublier les malheureux sans papilles

Consider the oyster by M. F. K Fisher( Book )
19 editions published between 1941 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"M.F.K. Fisher, whom John Updike has called our "poet of the appetites," here pays tribute to that most delicate and enigmatic of foods--the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared à la Rockefeller or au naturel--and of the pearls sometimes found therein--Fisher describes her mother's joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls' dorm in he 1890's, recalls her own initiation into the "strange cold succulence" of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve's famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Plumbing the "dreadful but exciting" life of the oyster, Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, and enchants us along the way with her characteristically wise and witty prose." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/hol054/88061169.html
