A natural companion to My Life in France, the memoir that he helped his great-aunt Julia Child to write, this album from Alex Prud'homme is full of personal stories and more than 200 photos by Paul Child, offering a remarkable glimpse into the life Julia and Paul shared and the cultural awakening that led to her wholehearted plunge into French cooking. In his role as cultural attaché for the U.S. Information Service, Paul knew photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, and he was a gifted photographer in his own right (his work is in the collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art). Paul delighted in finding subjects for his camera as he and Julia wandered Paris and the countryside, and the images here capture a magical period in their lives.
