I think I mentioned before that Julia Child's biography "Appetite For Life," by Noel Riley Fitch is superb. Some time ago a friend of mine saw me reading it during a trip to the gym. She thought the book would be boring, WRONG; on the contrary, I found it utterly fascinating. Begins with what she was like as a kid, upbringing, her education, what she did during the war (fascinating too) which lead up to her meeting Paul Child. Nice pics of their wedding, reflections on how she cared for Paul as he went downhill then died, but bravely carried on with her life. The book should be available in your local library, but I've got my own personal copy which I'd be loath to part with. Hope someone might be inspired to read it.
P.S. Wonder if this movie was reproduced on "faulty" DVD's? Just a day or so ago, another friend of mine remarked that they too lost the movie, then the theatre issued refunds or renewals depending on what people wanted. Hope that doesn't happen when I go to see it.
