Minou, Minette, meow!,
This review is from: Julia's Cats: Julia Child's Life in the Company of Cats (Hardcover)
On the eve of the hundredth anniversary of Julia Child's birth, I read this delightful reminiscence of Julia's life with her cats. While many recent books have chronicled her life with Paul through France and elsewhere, this short volume focuses on her adorable "poussiequettes".
Julia and Paul seemed to have had as many cats as cats have lives and the book is complementary to her life in the kitchen with each cat assuming a knowledge of how to win her affection...or how to get around the rules. There are many accompanying photos of their different cats but two back-to-back ones at the end are really a testament to her love. The first shows Julia, a week before her death, with Minou on her lap. The flip side pictures her with Minette in Paris, more then fifty years before.
Authors Patricia Barey and Therese Burson have compiled a warm, loving book about the relationship between human and feline. It's a wonderful summer read...or for that matter...at any time of the year.
