Biography & Memoir


Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Julie Powell

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

With the age of 30 looming, Julie Powell feels she hasn't accomplished anything in life except acquiring a dead-end secretarial job and a great husband. She decides to add meaning to her life by cooking all 524 recipes in Julia Child's MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING‚ over the course of a year. As we and Julie learn in this seamless abridgment, a perfect crêpe makes a bad day better and surviving a pancaked soufflé means one can endure anything. The author, who has a pleasant contralto voice, reads with humor and a rhythmic pacing perfectly suited to the book. Her lively reading (and excellent French) bring drama to the scenes and pleasure to the listener. A.C.S.
