Audiobook Giveaway: Cleaving by Julie Powell (Ends 12/21) CLOSED

Monday, December 07, 2009 Posted by Dina N


This summer, I enjoyed reading Julie Powell's memoir, Julie & Julia. I have not seen the movie starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child in theatres but since it's coming out on DVD tomorrow, I finally get to watch it at home! Julie has written a new book, Cleaving, that came out last week. Cleaving is available on a 9 CD audiobook, complete with a PDF of recipes, and read by Julie Powell herself! Stay tuned for my review of Cleaving - and in the meantime, three of my readers can win their own copy right here.

Book Description
Julie Powell thought cooking her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the craziest thing she'd 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 Fleischer's, 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 Fleischer's 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.

Thanks to Hachette Book Group, THREE readers will win the audiobook of Cleaving by Julie Powell!
