Julia Child has entered the hearts of millions of Americans through their kitchens. Yet few know of her richly varied private life. Fitch takes us through her years at Smith College, where Julia was at the center of every prank and party, to when she volunteered with the OSS during World War II. There she met her future husband, 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 bestselling classic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Now her career is legend, spanning nearly forty years and still going strong.

“Moving from privileged youth to OSS operative to Eliza Doolitttle to her husband’s Henry Higgins to chef extraordinaire, the biography of Julie Child revels far more than the woman who brought haute cuisine to the burbs.” (Booklist)
“[Nadia May’s] zest for her subject, as well as her subject’s engaging life, keeps the listener engrossed and satisfied.” (AudioFile)
