James O’Reilly recommends M.F.K. Fisher

James O’Reilly, publisher of Travelers’ Tales sent an email today to the TT staff, raving about M.F.K. Fisher. I thought I’d pass it on since there are several of you out there who email me asking how to improve your writing.

“Reading M.F.K. Fisher for Travelers’ Tales Provenceand DAMN is she good! I’d forgotten how wonderful, how extraordinary her writing is. Truly one of the Masters. Anyone who wants to write should read her books.”

The piece he was reading was from Map of Another Town.




James added, “Her style is so warm, so unique, so perceptive, so female, so universal, so timeless but in her time…”

Thanks James!
