On Bookshelves, Both On- and Offline, a Good Dose of Julia
At least one good thing has come out of the ridiculous media frenzy surrounding the release of the film Julie & Julia: a renewed interest in Julia Child's brilliant written works. Eat Me Daily noticed that Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume 1 is currently the number-one overall bestseller on Amazon, while her memoir My Life in France is at number 10 overall. Child's editor, Judith Jones, called it when she told Publishers Weekly last month: "Mastering the Art of French Cooking is going to be back in everyone's kitchen again, I hope."
