Nadia May's lively reading brings the world of Julia Child--"the French Chef"--to life. From Child's upper-class upbringing in California through her years of government service to her fame as America's first and foremost TV chef, May brings color and enthusiasm to the world of cooking. May's English accent and impeccable French give her the basic tools needed to capture Julia's personality and love of food, but her ardor for her subject carries her far beyond that. May transforms the seemingly endless details of menus and who's who lists of the cooking world into engrossing food for thought. Her zest for her subject, as well as her subject's engaging life, keeps the listener engrossed and satisfied as she artfully mimics Julia's high, shrill voice and maintains an even pace throughout.
