Summary
"In An Extravagant Hunger, time slows and is relished, and the turning points and casual strolls of M.F.K. Fisher's life are unwrapped and savored. From the Berengaria that washed her across the sea to France in 1929, to Le Paquis, the Swiss estate that later provided a backdrop for some of the most idyllic and fleeting moments of her life, the stories of Fisher's love for food and her love for family and men are meticulously researched and exquisitely captured in this book. Exploring Fisher's lonely and formative time in Europe with her first husband and her subsequent divorce and re-marriage to her creative sparkplug, Dillwyn Parrish, and his tragic suicide, the story of M.F.K. Fisher's life becomes as vibrant and passionate as her prolific words on wine and cuisine."--Jacket
