This volume brings together two delightful books--Map of Another Town and A Considerable Town--by one of our most beloved food and travel writers. In her inimitable style, here M.F.K. Fisher tells the stories--and reveals the secrets--of two quintessential French cities.

Map of Another Town, Fisher's memoir of the French provincial capital of Aix-en-Provence is, as the author tells us, "my picture, my map, of a place and therefore of myself," and a vibrant and perceptive profile of the kinship between a person and a place. Then, in A Considerable Town, she scans the centuries to reveal the ancient sources that clarify the Marseille of today and the indestructible nature of its people, and in so doing weaves a delightful journey filtered through the senses of a profound writer.
