In 1929, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher arrived in Dijon, the provincial capital of Burgundy and the gastronomical capital of France, there to be initiated into the ways of love and life. Long Ago In France is Fisher's exquisitely evocative, deliciously candid memoir of her three-year stay in Dijon. It is a delightful journey backward - in the grandest of company - into a voluptuous, genteel world that has vanished forever.

From the Back Cover:

A generation before Peter Mayle first set eyes on Provençe, a young American bride, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher, came to France and discovered a profusion of tastes, pastimes and sensuous pleasures in Dijon, France’s gastronomic capital. Picaresque, mouth-watering and crowded with unforgettable characters, 'Long Ago in France' is indeed a feast of a book, a delightful journey back to a voluptuous, genteel world, now vanished for ever.

“'Long Ago in France' captures, in loving and nostalgic detail, the life of a small French provincial town between the wars, when its inhabitants lived simply, ate well and gossiped”
TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

“'Long Ago in France' is a Burgundian feast, robust but exquisitely delicate, as fresh as the ingredients bought in this morning’s market”
NICHOLAS WOLLASTON, 'Observer'

“The enveloping glow of a young American couple in love, living on the cheap in 1920s France, is reminiscent of Hemingway – as are the lush discoveries of French wine and food ... Marvellously evocative”
SUNDAY TIMES

“I do not know of anyone in the United States today who writes better prose”
W.H. AUDEN

“M.F.K. Fisher is a poet of the appetites”
JOHN UPDIKE
