From the Publisher
Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that''s
"irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The
French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major
motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a
dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking
in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia
Child''s legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves''
livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film is
written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie
and Meryl Streep as Julia.

About the Book
Powell needs something to break the monotony of her life. So, she invents a deranged assignment: She will take her mother's dog-eared copy of Julia Child's 1961 classic, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," and cook all 524 recipes in the span of just one year.
