Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession by Julie PowellJulie Powell thought cooking her way through Julia Childs Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the craziest thing shed ever do--until she embarked on the voyage recounted in her new memoir, CLEAVING.
Her marriage challenged by an insane, irresistible love affair, Julie decides to leave town and immerse herself in a new obsession: butchery. She finds her way to Fleischers, a butcher shop where she buries herself in the details of food. She learns how to break down a side of beef and French a rack of ribs--tough, physical work that only sometimes distracts her from thoughts of afternoon trysts.
The camaraderie at Fleischers leads Julie to search out fellow butchers around the world--from South America to Europe to Africa. At the end of her odyssey, she has learned a new art and perhaps even mastered her unruly heart.

Last night I made fried zucchini squash blossoms. I stuffed them with cheese, dipped them in a batter of Guinness, half and half, flour, and salt, and fried them in oil. If you were reading about my squash blossoms on a food blog just as I read about several other amateur cooks' squash blossoms on their food blogs to figure out how to make them , it would have taken you several paragraphs to get to the denouement: they were delicious. First, you would probably have to read about my past relationship with squash blossoms. Then you'd hear how I came across them in the picturesque farmer's market or my own sweet little backyard vegetable patch, and you'd see a picture of them, all pretty yellow and orange petals. Eight hundred words or so in, and you still wouldn't know how to fry a squash blossom, but you'd know a whole lot about me.
Nothing odd in dreaming about a handsome actor. How could she write about it? First, the hard stuff. Within a few months, Eric who declined to be interviewed for this story knew of the affair. Eric responded by seeing another woman.

August 31, by millicent 19 Comments. Does an author have the right to be a bad person? A dark read. Not because of the one scene of anonymous sex which the entire internet seems to have fixated on, and which was totally forgettable , but because of the ugly and insanely raw emotional territory it occupies, and how fiercely it decimates the Julie Powell persona of Julie and Julie. I wrote this post about the internet response to the book and to female selfishness generally back in March
