    From Pasadena to Cambridge to New York, Washington, D.C., India, Ceylon, Paris, Marseilles, Santa Barbara, and Maine, Bob Spitz re-creates an extraordinary life. He takes us beyond the image of Julia as the tall, eccentric woman with a funny voice who taught America how to cook, to establish her as a genuine rebel and beloved icon, a woman who redefined herself in middle age, helped to change the role of women in America, set the standard for how to create a public personality in the modern media world.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    While I continue to hold this unfinished book on my iPod, I find myself skipping it in favor of other titles. While the Julie Child story is compelling, it simply takes too long to get to it. I believe an abridged version would be much more interesting.
