Over the years M. F. K. Fisher spent much of her time living and travelling round France, and ruminating - wisely, entertainingly, and with a deep and well-informed affection - on French food, French manners, French places and, of course, the French themselves. Here she not only celebrates, in her uniquely perceptive, evocative fashion, Aix-en-Provence and Marseille, but also gives us 'my picture, my map, of a place and therefore of myself'. Weaving together topography, history, folklore and personal memoirs with the looks, the sound, the smell and the taster of her chosen cities, M. F. I. Fisher provides the traveller, the gourmet and the lover of France and fine writing with unforgettable portraits f two remarkable and highly individual towns.
