Product description

Review

Since her year spent cooking her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, recounted in Julie & Julia, Julie Powell's mind has turned to meat. Cleaving follows Powell as she learns to butcher, and the process is inspired by, and dovetails with, a personal story - this time of her overcoming an affair that threatens her marriage. Pleasures of the flesh, indeed (Vogue)

Powell's hectic, confiding style is the literary equivalent of a girly evening of dirty gossip over a bottle or five of Sauvignon blanc...her narrative is vivid, well-structured, intense and moving (Daily Mail)

A remarkable confessional of butchery and adultery (Harper’s Bazaar)

Highly readable . . . beautiful writing, effortlessly filling pages with virtuoso descriptions of animal slaughter and human travail (Sunday Times)

About the Author

After a misspent youth involving dead-end jobs and questionable decisions, Julie Powell, author of Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously, has found her calling as a writer-cum-butcher. She lives in Long Island City, Queens, when she isn't in Kingston, NY, cutting up animals.
