This marvelous portrait of Brittany, its famous Belon oysters, traditions, culture and people won the 1965 National Book Award. It's an evocative, pleasurable account of Locmariaquer ("loc-maria-care") on France's northwest coast, the small town at the epicenter of the oyster hoopla. This new edition, with reading guide, is introduced by Mark Kurlansky.
