Julia is known around the world by her first name alone. But how much do we really know of the inner Julia Child? Through this riveting correspondence between Julia and Avis DeVoto, her âpen palâ and literary mentor, we hear Juliaâs deepest thoughts and feelings and witness the blossoming of a unique and lifelong friendship. We see, too, the turbulent creation of one of the most influential cookbooks ever written. Frank, bawdy, funny, exuberant, these astonishing letters show an America on the verge of political, social, and gastronomic transformation and two women deeply engaged in the making of that new world.
â[Child] comes booming back to life in these dishy missives . . . A delicious read.â â People (3Â½ of 4 stars)
âBlazingly alive and entirely irresistible.â â Boston Globe
