Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Alex Prud'homme's writing of his great-aunt Julia Child's memoirs is elegant, enthusiastic, and entertaining. Fans of "The French Chef" will thoroughly enjoy the story of how she stumbled upon a love of French food and culture as a newlywed in France. Although abridged, the story flows well, slowly unfolding the triumph of publishing her masterpiece, MASTERING THE ART OF FRENCH COOKING. Sadly, Flo Salant Greenberg's reading fails to rise to the level of such a public personality. Her French pronunciations are lovely, and, overall, she carries the prose forward, but her readings of Child's actual quotes don't do justice to a woman who seemed generally unable to contain her enthusiasm in life.
