A vibrant and perceptive profile of the kinship between a person and a place. In "A Considerable Town" M.F.K. Fisher scans the centuries to reveal the ancient sources that clarify the Marseille of today and the indestructible nature of its people A delightful journey filtered through the senses of a profound writer.
