First impressions of “Julie and Julia” by Julie Powell
1. After my recent spate of fiction, I’m having trouble remembering that this is an actual account of an experience by a real person. What crazy project can I blog about and end up with a book and movie deal? I’m open to suggestions.
2. I’ve seen one movie trailer, yet the faces of Amy Adams and Meryl Streep keep floating through my head.
3. Given the inclusion of a stick or more of butter in seemingly every Julia Child recipe, I’m concerned for Julie’s arteries.
4. Julie’s husband seems to be a willing and enthusiastic guinea pig. Are we sure this is nonfiction?
