In one of M.F.K. Fisher's many memoirs, she recounts the three years she spent living as a student with her husband in Dijon. In a dozen short chapters, the reader will meet countless interesting characters, from the uber-thrifty Ollagniers to the profligate Rigoulets. You will also get a very good sense of Dijon as a place, at least as it was in the 1920s.

While this book was quite pleasant, for some reason it didn't capture me.

Anyway, it was good, and it her descriptions of toilet facilities certainly made me appreciate my own living situation!
