Julia Child: A Life (Google eBook)
With a swooping voice, an irrepressible sense of humor, and a passion for good food, Julia Child ushered in the nationís culinary renaissance. In Julia Child, award-winning food writer Laura Shapiro tells the story of Childís unlikely career path, from California party girl to coolheaded chief clerk in a World War II spy station to bewildered amateur cook and finally to the Cordon Bleu in Paris, the school that inspired her calling. A food lover who was quintessentially American, right down to her little-known recipe for classic tuna fish casserole, Shapiroís Julia Child personifies her own most famous lesson: that learning how to cook means learning how to live.

Review: Julia Child (Penguin Lives)User Review - Keith Bell - Goodreads
An honest telling of Julia Child's life. Very fair biography with a balance of honour and honesty. Fascinating woman who influenced many. Definitely generational though. Had lunch with a friend who is quite a bit younger than I and he had no idea of who she was and had never heard of her. Read full review
