I WAS REALLY VERY HUNGRY A Portrait of M.F.K. Fisher

by | Read by Anne Archer, Kurt Ehrmann, Jennifer Friedmann, Lily Shaw, David Tierney

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1997

Anne Archer heads the cast of this recorded performance featuring excerpts from food writer M.F.K. Fisher's works. Archer illuminates both the sensuousness and the humor of Fisher's observations on food and people, while the supporting cast provides balance and contrast. Because this is a stage production, listeners can expect to hear sound effects and the audience's laughter, both of which add to the theater ambiance. The segments range from Fisher's early experience with trying new foods to her struggles dealing with her second husband's illness. Fans will recognize many of the dramatized pieces, and newcomers will enjoy this introduction to Fisher's lifelong obsession with food and how it underscores so many aspects of our lives.
