MY LIFE IN FRANCE by Julia Child
Though most of you have probably already seen the movie, Julia Child’s memoir MY LIFE IN FRANCE is well worth the read. It yields insights into the legend that can’t be captured on film. For instance, you wouldn’t know it from Streep’s bold portrayal that for the lion’s share of her life, Child lacked confidence and felt sad and frustrated that for years she had been sheltered from the larger world that France and her husband opened up to her. Also, her detailed, sumptuous descriptions and spot-on recall of long-past favorite meals are astounding. Don’t read this book hungry. (Softcover, $15.00). Recommended by Kelly.
