Description

"Exuberant, affectionate, and boundlessly charming . . . It chronicles, in mouth-watering detail, the meals and the food markets the sparked her interest in French cooking . . . It also tells the story of the inspired partnership between Child . . . and her husband, Paul . . . Every day in France brought a thrilling new discovery, but Child's capacity for wonder and delight co-existed with 'show me' skepticism . . . It is a wonderful picture of the most successful American export to France since Benjamin Franklin."
-William Grimes, The New York Times

"In mouth-watering detail, her learning years in Paris and the stellar career that followed."
-Meeta Agrawal, Life Magazine

"Captures her charm, warmth, and, above all, her determined and robust spirit . . . Anyone who has heard her on television will immediately recognize the frank, jovial, and embracing tone."
-John Skoyles, The Seattle Times/Associated Press


"What a joy . . . charming . . . inspiring."
-Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly

"Like a surprise nougat bursting from the center of a chocolate truffle, My Life in France also serves up her moving romance with the Renaissance man of her life . . . her husband, Paul Child."-Andrew Marton, The Philadelphia Inquirer

My book just arrived in the mail and I have not read it yet, so this review has nothing to do with the content. My issue is with the publisher and the poor quality of their workmanship. This hardcover is poorly bound. The outer edges are uneven and ragged! Not only is it visually unattractive, it is also difficult to separate and turn the pages. Bad form, Alfred A. Knopf! Where is your quality control?
