A personal essay by faculty member Doug Bauer is included in Best Food Writing 2009
, a Da Capo Press anthology due to hit shelves November 9.
Entitled "What We Hunger For," his essay stands in appreciation of the late M.F.K Fisher, a famed food writer who served as a great personal friend and influence of Bauer's.
"I'm thinking especially of the week when I first met her," Bauer writes, "and she showed me how to taste and savor life in ways I'd only started to sense I was hungry for; and also of the time, two decades later, when her life, as I saw it, was a vivid example of how to receive the meaner sustenance of age."
Bauer's piece originally appeared in the literary journal Tin House.
