The world knows Julia Child as the charismatic woman who brought French cuisine to America and became a TV sensation, but theres one aspect of her life thats not so familiar. Soon after the Childs arrived in Paris in 1948, a French cat appeared on their doorstep, and Julia recalled, Our domestic circle was completed. Minette captured Julias heart, igniting a lifelong passion for cats equaled only by her love of food and her husband, Paul. All the cherished feline companions who shared Julias lifein Paris, Provence, and finally Californiareminded her of that magical time in Paris when her life changed forever.
From Julias and Pauls letters and original interviews with those who knew her best, Patricia Barey and Therese Burson have gathered fresh stories and images that offer a delightfully intimate view of a beloved icon.

Praise for Julia's Cats:

?It's clear that all the cats that passed through her life gave her joy and comfort, probably in ways that food and even Paul could not. Having that perspective of this grande dame makes her seem all the more human and wonderfully admirable to me. Epicurious
