M.F.K. Fisher: Musings on Wine and Other Libations
"One of the greatest 20th century food writers, M.F.K. Fisher has graced us with a legendary body of work that contains many references to wine. Her passionate declarations of the pleasures of good food and drink were culture changing, and she elevated the status of wine in the United States. But a collection of Fisher's writings about wine and other libations has never before been published in one place until now.
The pieces and excerpts in this engaging anthology -- edited by acclaimed biographer Anne Zimmerman -- span Fisher's notable writing career, from her indulgent, wine-drinking days in 1930s France to her years as a gastronomic grande dame living in California in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
'M.F.K. Fisher is the best kind of wine writer. Not only does she make you more knowledgeable about and interested in wine, she makes you want to drink it.'"
