In honor of Julia Child's 100th birthday, Amazon has made As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto the Kindle Daily Deal today.

If you saw the movie Julie and Julia, you're familiar with the collaboration and friendship of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto.  This book gives us an inside look at their friendship through the over 200 letters included.  Their friendship started  in 1952, when Julia was a young bride in Paris just beginning the journey that would make her arguably the most famous cook in the world.

Publisher's Weekly says "Their letters span a wide range of topics, from cookbooks, menus, recipes, and restaurants to Balzac, sex, goose stuffing, gardening, learning languages, the political climate, Sunday afternoon cocktail parties, and proofreading.

It was the December 2010 Amazon Book of the Month.  432 pages.  Currently 4 1/2 stars with 63 reviews--50 of them five stars!
