Amy's Slant on literature…

Archive for August 15th, 2010


Adorable book and movie! However the real Julie Powell is not the same girl portrayed in the movie. Her second novel Cleaving: a story of Marriage, Meat andObsession is quite intimate and destroys any sweet notions you may have had about Julie Powell. In this story, she describes going on to become an apprentice butcher, an affair she had and she even admits to not being anything like the girl in the movie. It is difficult to reconcile this when I catch Julie/ Julia on television. I doubt this second novel will be made into a movie, thank goodness! It is not the enjoyable read her first novel was, skip it, you will not miss anything important.
