Description: Julia Child became a household name when she entered the lives of millions of Americans through our hearts and kitchens with her groundbreaking TV show and cook. books. Yet few know the richly varied private life that lies behind this icon, whose statuesque height and warm and enthusiastic warble have become synonymous with the art of cooking. In this biography, we meet the earthy and outrageous Julia, who, at age eighty-five, remains a complex role model.

Noel Riley Fitch takes us through Julia's extraordinary life and career, from her childhood in California and her years at Smith College, to her service with the OSS in China and India during World War II and her passionate marriage to Paul Child, to her years of culinary training and her reinvention of American attitudes toward food with the classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Filled with the humor and trademark aplomb that have made Julia such a beloved figure, Appetite for Life is a romantic biography of a woman modern before her time and a fascinating look at the profound effect she has had on American culture.
