It might actually happen.

Well, I've turned in the first draft of my book. And my editor has read it and called me and left me a message that makes it clear that she's not firing me. So, hell, a book might actually come out at some point. The title is "Cleaving," and it looks like they're preparing for a May '09 release date, so there you are.

Whew.

Now for that master cleanse. Aaaaannnnyyy day now.

Happy 4th!

Three cheers for a new book! I've been on frigging tenterhooks since "Julie and Julia".

Julie, I just finished your book, and found it wonderful. In fact, I mention it in a posting at my own blog site today: http://bilgrimage.blogspot.com/2008/07/standing-on-your-head-and-other.html.

I'm mentioning this not to promote my blog, but because it occurs to me that your publisher might want to know that another blogger has given your book a positive "review."

And what makes me think that is that I have just had a google notice telling me a blog posting I did about a Beacon Press book a few days ago is now linked to the Beacon Press blog.

Keep on writing. You have talent galore.

Your writing cracks my ass up. In approximately 12 minutes I will have finished reading Julie/Julia. Bought the book on a discount table at Border's -- mostly because I liked the turquoise cover and ducky whisk. (Also, it was $4.99 and I pretty much buy any harcover book at that price point ... especially if it's turquoise.)
Also, I liked to cook. Reading about cooking is even better than the cooking itself.
Prior to reading your tart and aspic treatise, my fave writer in the kitchen was Laurie Colwin.
Can't wait to pick up your new tome. It's about food, right?

I actually feel the same way about your books as I felt about Harry Potter. I read them like a maniac and then freak out for a year in between waiting for the next one. So thank God you're publishing another book. I just finished your first one. My real estate agent gave it to me.

Whoa. Your Julie/Julia's being made into a movie? When did this happen?
I swear, I am so friggin' late to this party (just having finished the Child project book, like, yesterday ...) that it's got me wondering what else has happened in the world that I simply MUST know.
OK ... so if Meryl Streep is playing Julia, who is slated to play you? Let me guess: Julia Roberts? She's a little long in the tooth, but I suppose they'll just put her in some cute office-type clothes and give her lots of ponytails and messy updo's while she's in the kitchen. *(Please let it be ANY other actress than J.R. I hate watching her on the big screen ... yuck!!!!!!!!)
One last question: When is the movie coming out? Must mark my calendars now.

I did the Master Cleanse once. It was... an experience.

I was going to do it again recently, but then I actually read the literature from the guy who created it. Dude is NUTSO! He thinks that people were only meant to eat berries and anyone who doesn't eat nothing but berries is filthy and horrible and doomed to a slow and somehow sudden death. I wouldn't take him or his diet seriously. Plus, the human body is built to naturally rid itself of toxins, so unless your liver is malfunctioning, you should be ok in the toxin-control department.

Dear Julie,
I am translating your book right now and I just wanted to say: I love it. And also: good luck. And also that I found it very encouraging and remarkable and inspiring and funny and that I think you did a great job (n every sense).
All the best!
