Summary

With her outsize personality, Julia Child is known around the world by her first name alone. But how much do we really know of the inner Julia? Now more than 200 letters exchanged between Julia and Avis DeVoto, her friend and unofficial literary agent, open the window on Julia's deepest thoughts and feelings. This riveting correspondence chronicles the blossoming of a unique and lifelong friendship and the turbulent process of Julia's creation of one of the most influential cookbooks ever written. Frank, bawdy, funny, exuberant, these astonishing letters show America on the verge of political, social, and gastronomic transformation.
