Join Books & Books in welcoming Bob Spitz, author of Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child. Child's first public exposure was cooking an omelet on a hot plate on a local TV station, and she would become an iconic figure whose joyous rule-breaking launched an American food revolution. Spitz's affectionate biography brings this fearless woman vividly to its pages, following her through her gawky, directionless youth working for a spy agency during World War II to her arrival in Paris, where she learned to cook and collaborated on the writing of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Award-winning author Bob Spitz has also authored the New York Times bestseller The Beatles, as well as seven other nonfiction books and a screenplay. His articles appear regularly in New York Times Magazine, Washington Post, and Rolling Stone.
