2009 book 182

Julia Child's My Life in France
I've actually been reading this off and on all week--the beginning is really enthralling, with Julia and Paul's early days of marriage, adventures getting to know France, and Julia starting to get into cooking. But things bog down as she spends years and years writing her first cookbook (and she is a tad bitchy about her friends/collaborators!). I guess I wish there had been a heavier hand editing this or something.

I agree that it bogs a little, but I think the reason why that wasn't edited out is because it shows her commitment and determination to finishing that thing no matter what!

I DEFINITELY admired her for that!
