In the 1930s, M.F.K. Fisher practically invented the genre of food writing, making connections among the many types of human appetites. Narrator Cassandra Campbell highlights the complex personalities in this fictional account of Fisher's early adulthood, which focuses primarily on the author's awakening passions for love, eating, and writing. Although a love triangle is at the heart of Fisher's coming of age, Campbell is careful to color her performance with respect for the many layered emotions, allowing listeners to understand the trio's distress, caused by feelings they can't control. This audiobook is perfect for Fisher's fans, though it offers little new material. For those less familiar with Fisher, it provides a look at an earlier time when strong women were not supported in their endeavors. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
