Synopsis: During the last years of her life, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher began reflecting aloud over a large collection of old family photos, envisioning a scrapbook of people, places, and times past. This volume showcases these photos, with extended anecdotal captions taken from her published and unpublished writings. 242 photos.

Review: So skillfully did M.F.K. Fisher stripmine her biography for her essays and books that even her most faithful readers may be surprised at the gaps in their knowledge of her life.... sensuous, witty and quick in pace ... at one with the spirit of its subject. -- The New York Times Book Review, Michael Anderson

[T]he scrapbook matches faces to the "characters" we know well from her books and meet less formally in the letters. Excerpts from Fisher's writing set the tone, which is subtly elegiac throughout, as is fitting for an album of people who live in our consciousness simply because they knew, or were related to, or brushed past a human being with a twinned gift for life and language. As captured here, M.F.K. Fisher gives off a physical radiance, kindled by a steady inner light, that intensifies with the passage of time. -- The Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review, Michael Frank
