As I suspected, I find Julia Child, as a real person, not the caricature she's often depicted as, deeply fascinating. Yes, we know she had a zest for France and French cooking, but rarely do we get insight into her insecurities, her disappointments and struggles -- all placed against her mostly optimistic worldview and her (strangely) passionate relationship with her devoted husband, Paul. Yes, the food practically smells through the pages, but Julia encourages everyone to try to do anything, not just cooking, but anything worthwhile and authentic, well.
An enjoyable read. Good description of Southern life. Funny at times.
