5 books to help you escape from nursing
3. M. F. K. Fisher is known for her careful, precise writing about food and appetites. My favorite book of hers is one she published during the Second World War, called How to Cook a Wolf. It’s a slender volume, but it’s full of advice on how not to starve—and also how not to feel deprived, even in the face of rationing, shortages and despair. It’s not laugh-out-loud funny, but has moments of sharp wit. It would be best enjoyed when you’ve turned the air conditioner way, way down and are sitting on the couch, pretending it’s January. Pull all the curtains and light one single light, then imagine you’re in the middle of a blackout drill.
