Map of Another Town: A Memoir of Provence.
by [Food Memoir] Fisher, M.F. K.
Little Brown & Co,
A Near Fine copy in a price clipped dust jacket with some toning the edges. The timeless beauty of Aix de Provence, delicately and incisively perceived, is so fused with the author's own fluctuating and most feminine sensibilities that the reader finds himself absorbed in an inner life of memory, a conscious growth of understanding. During her two sojourns in Aix de Provence with her two young daughters, the author intuits, observes the sights, sounds and humanity of the "town". The pure sensate joy of perceiving the many qualities of light, the texture of aging stone, the lyric beauty of the fountains, is brilliantly communicated. Throughout Fisher retains her own identity as the American outsider, yet indulges in a deep appreciation of the Gallic provincial identity. A refreshing guide for the senses and spirit.
