M.F.K. Fisher: An Annotated Bibliographyby Mr. Donald Zealand, Mr. Randall Tarpey-Schwed, Ms. Joan Reardon (Introduction)
Though best know for her gastronomic
Described as a national treasure and the finest prose writer in America, and christened as a "Poet of the Appetites", M.F.K. Fisher has long been considered the finest food writer of the 20th century. But Fisher would have rejected the term "food writer" as an inaccurate and limiting description of her oeuvre for good reason.
Though best know for her gastronomic writings, M.F.K. Fisher was also a novelist, travel writer, memoirist, critic, and essayist of the highest order. In an astoundingly prolific career, Fisher wrote over two dozen books, hundreds of magazine articles, dozens of book reviews, and many volumes of journals. Her output, which influenced generations of writers, has been translated into ten languages and has appeared in nearly one hundred anthologies.
M.F.K. Fisher: An Annotated Bibliography is an essential tool for accessing and understanding Fisher's life and work. Comprehensive in scope, it is the definitive resource for Fisher fans, scholars, researchers, and booksellers. The bibliography identifies everything ever published by Fisher and provides concise summaries of each work, as well as citations to hundreds of publications about Fisher's life and work. The Fourth Revised Edition also contains much new information including descriptions to assist with physical identification of the many editions of Fisher's books, an appendix listing nearly one hundred examples of Fisher's inclusions in anthologies, and identification of World Wide Web accessible material by and about Fisher.
