About the Book:
Amazingly energetic, creative, and ultimately inimitable (despite many attempts), Julia Child (d.2004) brought French cooking to American kitchens.
For this book she worked with her husband's grandnephew Alex Prud'homme to record her experiences between 1948 and 1954 in Paris and Marseille (and a few later adventures), which she terms the best years of her life.
Like her life, her book is full of fun and zest. Fans will savor, or devour, this account.
This fascinating autobiography was combined with Julie Powell's 2005 book, Julie and Julia, to create the new movie of that same title.
