In this stylish novel, M.F.K. Fisher follows the course of Jennie, a willful, wandering woman, a lovely enchantress calculating the havoc caused by her life of danger and license. Not Now but Now is Fisher\'s only novel. In it she traces the subtleties and nuances of a woman\'s mind. Controlled neither by others nor by time, Jennie moves through separate eras and beautifully drawn settings in San Francisco, Chicago, Lausanne, and Paris. rEVIEW: \"Fisher depicts with startlingly sharp strokes the discrepancy between the inner and outer Jennie, creating a remarkable character that illuminates Fisher\'s evident skill at fiction writing.\" (Publishers Weekly). REVIEW; \"Her eye is so acute and her voice is so true, she invariably bewitches us.\" (Newsweek). read less...
