Description
(A Washington Post, NPR, and Time Magazine Best Book of 2012) A genuine rebel who took the pretensions that embellished French cuisine and fricasseed them to a fare-thee-well, Julia Child paved the way for a new era of American food, at the same time blazing a new trail in television. She redefined herself in middle age, fought for women's rights, and forever altered how we think about what we eat. Bob Spitz chronicles Child's life and passions, her heartwarming romance with her husband Paul, and, of course, the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking and her triumphant TV career.

"Those with a hunger for all things Julia have a substantial new biography by Bob Spitz to sink their teeth into.... Author and subject almost become one, as Spitz channels the spirit of Child in his own words."Washington Post
