Description: M.F.K. Fisher is to literary prose, says the Chicago Sun-Times, "what Sir Laurence Olivier is to acting." And Newsweek writes, "Her eye is so acute and her voice so true, she invariably bewitches us." In one volume, Pantheon presents the lifetime writings of M.F.K. Fisher culled from unpublished journals, correspondance, and short stories.

To Begin Again provides us with a portrait of Fisher's early years, from her family's migration to California in 1912 to her first marriage in 1929. Fisher speaks here of the people and events which first shaped her finely tuned and lasting appetites. During these years of "learning to live well gastronomically" she spent several rugged summers with Aunt Gwen, catching and frying fresh rock bass, carrying fried-egg sandwiches "greasily in our pockets on our long treks in every direction of that wild deserted country. This was when the young Fisher felt the value of being nurtured in body and soul.

Continuing where she left off in To Begin Again, Stay Me, Oh Comfort Me presents a candid and revealing portrait of the artist during what may have been the most traumatic period of her life. Fisher tells of her travels from France to California, and finally to Switzerland, accompanied by her first husband and their friend, Dilwyn Parrish. This is Fisher's most open account of their complicated triangle and the details behind her decision to divorce her husband and marry Parrish.

Fisher first envisioned Last House as an anthology of interesting stories and useful tips. But as age and illness took their toll, this compilation became a testament to her will to continue writing and is a wry, candid portrait of an artist grappling with growing older.
