Obituary: M. F. K. Fisher
Friday 17 July 1992
She summed it all up by writing, in Sister Age, 'I have spent my life in a painstaking effort to tell things as they are to me.' In The Gastronomic Me (1943), through Among Friends (1970) and As They Were (1982) to Sister Age (1984), there marches a parade of relatives, family and friends; and of those too who were not friends. (In Among Friends, she wrote of those in whose midst she lived for 40 years, 'I was not invited to 'meeting' until I was almost 50 (and) never invited inside a Friend's house.')
At the beginning she had written, 'I am not old and famous, with friends whose names sound like the guest-lists of all the diplomatic receptions held since 1872,' but by the end that is just what she had become.
