My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme

Julia Child has become "trendy" again with the release of the upcoming movie Julie and Julia, which was partially based on this book. It is an interesting first-hand account of how Julia found her life passion in food in 1950s Paris, reconstructed from her letters and supplemented with personal photos. She was certainly a Renaissance woman before her time, and continues to serve as an example of a strong woman even today.
