Giveaway - Cleaving by Julie Powell Audiobook

Anna, from Hachette Book Group, has graciously allowed me to host a giveaway for three copies of the audiobook of Cleaving by Julie Powell.

Book Description (from the publisher): 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.

My review of the audiobook is here. I think if you were a fan of Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, you will also enjoy this novel.

  16. Thank you for the giveaway! My husband and I just watched the movie (only I read the book, it cracked me up and I really liked it.)
    After we saw it we both were looking at reviews of Cleaving and not so sure if we'd like it as much due to some of the authors life choices, but as an ex cook and fan of her previous work, I'd LOVE to read it!
