really liked it
bookshelves: foodie-related, memoirs

I finished the book last night and really enjoyed it. In her final summary, Julie Powell talked about presence, joy and love of Julia Child. Almost...almost made me cry. I hope that the pending movie can get past the slapstick comedy of Julie Powell and the larger than life caricature of Julia Child and hit on that emotional context. But really, this is a fun book. In the first half I was reading it with my copy of MtAoFC!
