    W.H. Auden once said of her, "I do not know of anyone in the United States today who writes better prose," and added, "The Art of Eating is a book which I thikn Colette would have loved and wished she had written." The five books included here are all uncut and all true classics of gastronomy. Whether they are recalling "graceful ghosts of dinners eaten" or giving a precis on the correct boiling of an egg, they are flavored throughout with the wit, warmth and wisdom that is Fisher's own. Together they encompass an eclectic collection of original recipes from "Oysters a la Begein or Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense" to all sorts of budget saving good dishes for times when the wolf is at the door. There is a recipe index in the back.
