Description

"The spirit of the indomitable Julia Child lives on ... A saucy soup-to-nuts compilation."
--Vanity Fair

"An absorbing portrait of an unexpected friendship."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Julia's inimitable voice shines through ... These letters offer [a] glimpse of how the truly great can merge heart and soul in the pursuit of excellence."
--Wall Street Journal

"[Child] comes booming back to life in these dishy missives ... A delicious read."
--People (31/2 of 4 stars)

"Blazingly alive and entirely irresistible."
--Boston Globe

"This book feels like chick lit ... of an exalted order ... Two housewives, each in her 40s ... let rip about all kinds of things, from shallots, beurre blanc and the misery of dried herbs to politics, aging and sex ... Funny and forthright opinions about food and life."
--New York Times

"A testament to the fortitude that went into creating a classic."
--Saveur

"Just as interesting as the behind-the-scenes nuts-and-bolts on this culinary landmark is the far subtler picture that is painted of these two women, the times in which they were living, and the friendship that grew between them ... The letters take on the resonance of a plainsong kind of poetry."
--Los Angeles Times

"Delightful . . . Expertly edited by the culinary historian Joan Reardon, [it] fills in that period of hard work, uncertainty, cheerleading and deepening love."
--Bloomberg

"A pleasure both culinary and literary . . . A lesson in how to become an American original."
--Whole Living

"An important piece of culinary history through the never-before-seen letters between these two witty women."
--New York Post

"A reminder of the power of persistence, of a dream or a friendship, and of the lost art of writing a letter."
--Oregonian

"Fascinating and engrossing."
--Dallas Morning News
