The Biography of Julia Child Noël Riley Fitch. Anchor (pap) 18.95 6.98 Julia Child entered the lives of millions of Americans with her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking, her cooking show The French Chef, and her memoir My Life in France. In this "delicious recounting" (Town & Country) of her remarkable life, Noël Riley Fitch takes us from Child's exuberant youth to her volunteer service with the OSS in World War II, where she met her future husband Paul Child, and then to the discovery of her true calling in a Paris cooking class. Fitch chronicles the difficult birthing process of Child's landmark cookbook and how her statuesque height and warmly enthused warble have since become synonymous with the art of cooking.
