Sister Age
By

Rating
In these fifteen remarkable stories, M.F.K. Fisher embraces age as St. Francis welcomed Brother Pain. With a saint to guide us, she writes in her Forewod, perhaps we can accept in a loving way 'the inevitable visits of a possibly nagging harpy like Sister Age.' But in these stories, it is the human strength in the unavoidable encounter with the end of life that Mrs. Fisher dramatizes so powerfully.

The author of numerous books, magazine articles, novels, and a translation of Brillat-Savarin's The Physiology of Taste, Fisher is best remembered for her gastronomical works and the autobiographical nature of her writings about people, places, and food. M F.K. Fisher died in 1992.
