Transcript

  • 1. Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child
  • 2. Book Description● It’s rare for someone to emerge in America who can change our attitudes, our beliefs, and our very culture. It’s even rarer when that someone is a middle-aged, six-foot three-inch woman whose first exposure to an unsuspecting public is cooking an omelet on a hot plate on a local TV station. And yet, that’s exactly what Julia Child did. The warble-voiced doyenne of television cookery became an iconic cult figure and joyous rule-breaker as she touched off the food revolution that has gripped America for more than fifty years.
  • 3. Book Description● Now, in Bob Spitz’s definitive, wonderfully affectionate biography, the Julia we know and love comes vividly — and surprisingly — to life. In Dearie, Spitz employs the same skill he brought to his best-selling, critically acclaimed book The Beatles, providing a clear-eyed portrait of one of the most fascinating and influential Americans of our time — a woman known to all, yet known by only a few.
  • 4. Book Description● At its heart, Dearie is a story about a woman’s search for her own unique expression. Julia Child was a directionless, gawky young woman who ran off halfway around the world to join a spy agency during World War II. She eventually settled in Paris, where she learned to cook and collaborated on the writing of what would become Mastering the Art of French Cooking, a book that changed the food culture of America. She was already fifty when The French Chef went on the air — at a time in our history when women weren’t making those leaps.
  • 5. Book Description● A fearless, ambitious, supremely confident woman, Julia took on all the pretensions that embellished tony French cuisine and fricasseed them to a fare-thee-well, paving the way for everything that has happened since in American cooking, from TV dinners and Big Macs to sea urchin foam and the Food Channel. Julia Child’s story, however, is more than the tale of a talented woman and her sumptuous craft. It is also a saga of America’s coming of age and growing sophistication, from the Depression Era to the turbulent sixties and the excesses of the eighties to the greening of the American kitchen.
  • 6. Book Description● On the centenary of her birth, Julia finally gets the biography she richly deserves. An in-depth, intimate narrative, full of fresh information and insights, Dearie is an entertaining, all-out adventure story of one of our most fascinating and beloved figures.
  • 7. Editorial Reviews● "A biography perfectly suited to its subject -- as lively, fascinating, and singular as Julia Child herself." –Daniel Okrent, author of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition● “It’s a revelation.” – Lev Grossman, Time Magazine● “A rollicking biography that captures the vision, pluck and contagious exuberance that were the essence of Julia Child” – People Magazine
  • 8. Customer Reviews● “Mr. Spitz brings Julia and Paul Child to life. ” Janet C. Niemeye● “Very well written and extremely well researched, this book is a delightful read. ” rose thyme● “I loved her laugh and the way she would make a mistake and simply laugh over it. “ Patricia Mejia Burke
