T+L Reports: Gael Greene and Julia Child Books

Food critic Gael Greene unveils her appetite for pursuits both edible and salacious in her memoir, Insatiable (Warner Books; $26), a love letter to food, restaurants—and men. Greene recalls half a century of dinners (Le Cirque, Troisgros), dalliances (Elvis, Burt Reynolds), and adventures with culinary royalty, including Julia Child. Meanwhile, Child's long-awaited posthumous autobiography, My Life in France (Alfred A. Knopf; $26), has just hit stores. With personal photos interspersed throughout, the master of French cuisine recounts, in remarkable detail, the six years she spent honing her gastronomic talents in Paris, Marseilles, and, later, at her simple house—endearingly named La Pitchoune ("the little pot")—in Provence.
