I have cried only twice over a famous person's passing in the last 30 years, the first was Princess Diana when she died so violently and so suddenly, (for her & her boys). And at the end of Mr. Spitz's book Dearie, two tears slid down my cheeks! Not because she passed (we all will) but she did it her way, until the raft hit the water! She was and will remain an inspiration to me. Good book Mr. Spitz.
I recently saw the light-hearted comedy drama Julia & Julia and enjoyed it immensely (Streep was fabulous). However, having read this book, I realise now it totally undersold how influential Child was.
If you love cooking and love France this is a book for you.
An absolutely astonishing life.
Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, I had just polished off the last chapter. I usually quickly read books, but this book I found especially hard to put down. I grew up watching Julia with my parents, and I own her Mastering book-- but never before have I truly understood what a remarkable woman she was. I found her story a real inspiration-- especially for those of us still trying to find our calling in life. Julia didn't even know how to cook until she was almost 40! Julia's story came into my life at just the right time-- I highly recommend it!
