M.F.K. Fisher moved to Aix-en-Provence with her young daughters after the Second World War. In Map of Another Town, she traces the history of this ancient and famous town, known for its tree-lined avenues, pretty fountains and ornate façades. Beyond the tourist sights, Fisher introduces us to its inhabitants: the waiters and landladies, down-and-outs and local characters, all recovering from the effects of the war in a drastically new France.
Fisher is known as one of America s most celebrated food writers; here she gives us a fascinating portrait of a place. It is, as she confesses, a self-portrait: my picture, my map, of a place and therefore of myself. This is an intimate travel memoir written in Fisher s inimitable style confident, confiding and always compelling.
