Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child

Non-Fiction

By Bob Spitz

This is such a delightful and well written book. While her name and presentations weredearie synonymous with French cooking, and parodies on Saturday Night Live, Child was more than just a TV chef. She was a pioneer who created a food revolution in this country. This wonderful book chronicles her struggles, her travels, her romance with her husband Paul, and her remarkable television career. The author’s style helps to convey the strength, oddity, and voice of this truly amazing woman, as if she were telling you the story herself. The biography is written in almost a visual style, and you can see Child’s life unfold in stark clarity.
