    Betty Fussell

    Top Ten Books

    Married in 1949 at the age of 21 to the historian and writer Paul Fussell, Betty Fussell was self-taught in Latin and German and applied similar rigor to teaching herself to cook because (in her own words for Vogue in 2005) “housewifery wasn’t enough.” A self-education in cooking led to 12 books, a mix of memoir and essay, biography and history, and a 2009 win of the James Beard Foundation’s Journalism Award. Fussell released her latest, a book of essays titled “Eat, Live, Love, Die,” in November, 2016.

    Below are Betty Fussell’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
