Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Author-narrator Alex Prud'homme, Julia Child's great-nephew, shares the fascinating story of her rise to lasting fame and ascendance to cultural icon. With a peppy narration and flawless French pronunciations, Prud'homme traces her trajectory from "The French Chef" TV series to Volume 2 of MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING to collaborations with other famous chefs such as Jacques Pépin. It's an in-depth and intimate portrait of an ambitious and driven woman who found abundant joy with her husband and partner, Paul, and in living her life on her terms. At age 90, Child told a newspaper, "I love working. You don't have to retire nowadays, do you? I don't even know what it would mean." There's plenty here for listeners to savor.
