    In this poetic, sensitive memoir, M. F. K. Fisher traces her life from birth through childhood into adulthood through memories of her loving family and their lives as outsiders in the Quaker community of Whittier, California. Recalling the people, passions, sounds, and scents of her childhood, with its kindnesses and quiet cruelties, Fisher also portrays her developing interests in literature, food, and cooking. Elegantly and invitingly written, Among Friends demonstrates the writer’s belief that “every lesson, every lecture listened to, must be interpreted into a personal dialect of human language, and that is what I keep trying to do.

    Fisher here pays tribute to that most enigmatic of ocean creatures, the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared a la Rockefeller or au naturel – and of the pearls sometimes found therein – Fisher describes her mother’s joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls’ dorm in the 1890s, recalls her own initiation into the “strange cold succulence” of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve’s famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, enchanting readers her characteristically wise and witty prose. Index of Recipes. 78p.
