Over two decades, Julia Child maintained a characteristically energetic correspondence with her close friend, fellow expert cook, and unofficial literary agent Avis DeVoto (1904-1989). This collection of two hundred letters between the pair renders not only their robust personalities, but also the evolution of Child's cooking philosophy and her masterful Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Culinary historian Joan Reardon presides over this plentiful gathering. Exuberant revelations; editor's recommendation. DeVoto was a featured character in the Julie & Julia film.
