Those who remember Mrs. Fisher’s virtuoso performances in her witty cook-books must enlarge their frame of reference – the author’s skill is extended to an appreciation of a town and tempo which is a rare treat. The timeless beauty of Aix de Provence, delicately and incisively perceived, is so fused with the author’s own fluctuating and most feminine sensibilities that the reader finds himself absorbed in an inner life of memory, a conscious growth of understanding. During her two sojourns in Aix de Provence with her two young daughters, the author intuits, observes the sights, sounds and humanity of the ‘town’. The pure sensate joy of perceiving the many qualities of light, the texture of aging stone, the lyric beauty of the fountains, is brilliantly communicated.
