Publication Date: September 2006
Now in paperback-the format in which it's destined to become a reading group favorite-the most heralded and hilarious memoir of recent years:
Nearing 30 and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, Julie Powell reclaims her life by cooking every single recipe in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking in the span of one year. It's a hysterical, inconceivable redemptive journey - life rediscovered through aspics, calves' brains and crème brûlée.
The bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer) is now a major motion picture directed by Nora Ephron, starring Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia, the film Julie & Julia will be released by Sony Pictures on August 7, 2009.
After spending a long, long time working as a temp, Julie Powell no writes in her pajamas in Long Island City, Queens, where she shares a "loft" apartment with her husband Eric; their dog, Robert; their cats, Maxine, Lumi, and Cooper; and their snake, Zuzu Marlene.
