When Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher wrote about food, she also wrote about eccentricity, intimacy, and desire, about change, endurance, and survival. M.F.K. Fisher’s work laid the foundation of modern literary food writing.  The Art of Eating traces the remarkable life of this vibrant, sensual writer, and explores the impact of her ideas on food and its meaning in our lives.
