As Always, Julia is the collected letter between Julia Child and Avis DeVoto.  My biggest complain about the book is the cover photo.  It is sweet, but as the story of a friendship, I think they should have gone with this snapshot:

How comfortable and cooly theirselves do these ladies look?  As made plain by my blog's title, I am a huge fan of Julia Child.  She was an amazing woman.  This collection only made my devotion more firm.

The correspondence between these two began with a letter from Julia to Avis's husband about an article he wrote on knives.  From that sprung a lifelong friendship.

I would recommend this book to readers who loved My Life in France and want to dive deeper.  I loved peaking into their talks on politics, family and cooking.  Wonderful read!  8/10.
