In this enchanting follow-up to My Life in France—Julia Child’s beloved and best-selling memoir—her co-author and grandnephew, Alex Prud’homme, chronicles Julia’s rise from home cook to the first celebrity chef. While at the beginning of her career Julia’s name was synonymous with French cooking, she fashioned a new identity in the 1970s, reinventing and Americanizing herself. Here we see her dealing with difficult colleagues and the challenges of fame, and ultimately using her newfound celebrity to create what would become a totally new type of food television. The story of a remarkable woman who found her true voice in middle age and profoundly shaped our relationship with food, The French Chef in America is a fascinating look at the second act of a unique culinary icon.

It’s rare for someone to emerge in America who can change our attitudes, our beliefs, and our very culture. It’s even rarer when that someone is a middle-aged, six-foot three-inch woman whose first exposure to an unsuspecting public is cooking an omelet on a hot plate on a local TV station. And yet, that’s exactly what Julia Child did. The warble-voiced doyenne of television cookery became an iconic cult figure and joyous rule-breaker as she touched off the food revolution that has gripped America for more than fifty years. Now, in Bob Spitz’s definitive, wonderfully affectionate biography, the Julia we know and love comes vividly — and surprisingly — to life. In Dearie, Spitz employs the same skill he brought to his best-selling, critically acclaimed book The Beatles, providing a clear-eyed portrait of one of the most fascinating and influential Americans of our time — a woman known to all, yet known by only a few. At its heart, Dearie is a story about a woman’s search for her own unique expression. Julia Child was a directionless, gawky young woman who ran off halfway around the world to join a spy agency during World War II. She eventually settled in Paris, where she learned to cook and collaborated on the writing of what would become Mastering the Art of French Cooking, a book that changed the food culture of America. She was already fifty when The French Chef went on the air — at a time in our history when women weren’t making those leaps. Julia became the first educational TV star, virtually launching PBS as we know it today; her marriage to Paul Child formed a decades-long love story that was romantic, touching, and quite extraordinary. A fearless, ambitious, supremely confident woman, Julia took on all the pretensions that embellished tony French cuisine and fricasseed them to a fare-thee-well, paving the way for everything that has happened since in American cooking, from TV dinners and Big Macs to sea urchin foam and the Food Channel. Julia Child’s story, however, is more than the tale of a talented woman and her sumptuous craft. It is also a saga of America’s coming of age and growing sophistication, from the Depression Era to the turbulent sixties and the excesses of the eighties to the greening of the American kitchen. Julia had an effect on and was equally affected by the baby boom, the sexual revolution, and the start of the women’s liberation movement. On the centenary of her birth, Julia finally gets the biography she richly deserves. An in-depth, intimate narrative, full of fresh information and insights, Dearie is an entertaining, all-out adventure story of one of our most fascinating and beloved figures.

Βασισμένο σε μια πρωτότυπη νέα ιστορία από την Τζ. Κ. Ρόουλινγκ, τον Τζον Τίφανι και τον Τζακ Θορν, Ο Χάρι Πότερ και το καταραμένο παιδί είναι η πρώτη επίσημη ιστορία με πρωταγωνιστή τον Χάρι Πότερ που ανεβαίνει στη σκηνή. Η παγκόσμια πρεμιέρα της θεατρικής παράστασης έλαβε χώρα στο Ουέστ Εντ του Λονδίνου, στις 30 Ιουλίου 2016. Ανέκαθεν ήταν δύσκολο να είσαι ο Χάρι Πότερ και δεν έχει γίνει καθόλου ευκολότερο τώρα που ο Χάρι εργάζεται σκληρά στο Υπουργείο Μαγείας, είναι σύζυγος και πατέρας τριών παιδιών που πηγαίνουν σχολείο. Ενώ ο Χάρι παλεύει με το παρελθόν του, ο νεότερος γιος του, Άλμπους, έρχεται αντιμέτωπος με το βάρος της οικογενειακής κληρονομιάς που ποτέ του δε θέλησε. Καθώς το παρελθόν μπερδεύεται με το παρόν, πατέρας και γιος μαθαίνουν την ενοχλητική αλήθεια: κάποιες φορές το σκοτάδι προβάλλει από μέρη που δεν το περιμένεις.
