I did an interview about the book with Jama’s Alphabet Soup, which you can read here, and, while you’re at it, you might want to check out Jama’s posts on other Julia-related reads (such as this). Also, there is this, which is simply too amazing for words. You’ll just have to take a peek yourself.
And, finally, I thought I’d share two quotes from Julia Child herself:
“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.”
“I’m afraid that surprise, shock, and regret is the fate of authors when they finally see themselves on the page.”
