Passion and Extravagance

What more could you want?

I can't wait to read An Extravagant Hunger - the new book about the passionate years of M.F.K. Fisher and written by my lovely friend Anne Zimmerman. At Anne's reading at Omnivore Books last Thursday night, I got a glimpse into the pages of this marvelous telling of M.F.K.'s life. Before this year, I'd never even heard of M.F.K. Fisher. Now, I'm excited to explore everything about her. Having just read this week's New Yorker cover to cover, it's time for me to launch into an actual book and I think the latest from Anne Zimmerman is the one.

Happy reading!
