Today’s Kindle Deal of the Day is As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto for just $1.99.
In honor of Julia Child’s 100th birthday, this deal is being offered today only. If you’re a Julia fan (who isn’t??) this is a great title.
Frank, bawdy, funny, exuberant, and occasionally agonized, these letters show Julia, first as a new bride in Paris, then becoming increasingly worldly and adventuresome as she follows her diplomat husband in his postings to Nice, Germany, and Norway.
With commentary by the noted food historian Joan Reardon, and covering topics as diverse as the lack of good wine in the United States, McCarthyism, and sexual mores, these astonishing letters show America on the verge of political, social, and gastronomic transformation.This post may contain affiliate links, which help support this site.
