|Plot Summary of Map of Another Town|
|"Fisher provides a portrait of one of the significant towns of her life, Aix-en-Provence, where she lived at various times in the 1950s, and visited from the 1920s through the 1970s. Sometimes the essays read like a guide book, with discussions of hotels, cafes, and the famed fountains of Aix, but whenever she turns to people they are inevitably absorbing: the working-class couple whose fortunes and fights over time can be glimpsed through a nearby window; the various street beggars and their methods; the doctors of the town; a stunningly beautiful young man with whom Fisher becomes distantly fascinated; the "fat careless priest" officiating at a christening, who "held the new child as if it were a distastefully cold omelet that might stick on his fingers.""
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
