Description
A household name, Julia Child has entered the hearts of millions of Americans through their kitchens. Yet few know the richly varied private life that lies behind this icon. Fitch takes us from her exuberant youth through her years at Smith College, where Julia was at the center of every prank and party. When most of her girlfriends married, Julia volunteered with the OSS during World War II and was an integral part of the elite corps. There she met her future husband, Paul Child, who introduced her to the glories of fine French cuisine, art, and love.Julia invested ten years of learning and experimentation in what would become her first best-selling classic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Now her career is legend, spanning nearly forty years and still going strong. Hers is a truly American life.
