The Big Oyster

I like oysters. I like New York City. But I did not enjoy slogging through a hundred pages of this, and life is short. Maybe if I lived in NYC I would have the tolerance to finish?

  1. MFK Fisher’s “Consider The Oyster” is a fantastic book about oysters. It includes some history, but it’s illuminating rather than cumbersome. Anyone who eats or travels should read Fisher. “The Art Of Eating” is an omnibus edition of five of her books and is a favorite of mine.
