Julia Child Gets Another Book Deal


Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish As Always Julia, a book of letters between Julia Child and her agent Avis DeVoto, this fall. The book will include over 200 letters written between 1952 and 1966, fourteen years that included the publication of Mastering the Art of French Cooking and the debut of The French Chef, says the Globe. Julie & Julia viewers will remember DeVoto, played by Strangers With Candy’s Deborah Rush, as the friend Child visits in Cambridge who passes along Child’s cookbook manuscript to Houghton Mifflin, who, ironically, declined.
