Another thing I find interesting is that Mastering The Art of French Cooking, Volume One is doing even better than Julie and Julia (no slouch at number 31) on the Amazon Best Seller List. Mastering, at this writing, is number 1. My Life in France, currently out of stock and a fantastic read, is number 13. Here's more info about that and the source of the Julie interview.
