"Many of us have dog-eared copies of Mastering the Art of French Cooking in our kitchens or fondly remember watching episodes of The French Chef, but what was behind the enormous appeal of this ungainly, unlikely woman, who became a superstar in midlife and changed our approach to food and cooking forever? In the spirit of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel and How Georgia Became O'Keeffe, Julia Child Rules dissects the life of the sunny, unpretentious chef, author, cooking show star, and bon vivant, with an eye towards learning how we, too, can savor life. With her characteristic wit and flair, Karen Karbo takes us for a spin through Julia's life: from her idyllic childhood in California to her confusing young adulthood in New York; her years working for the OSS in Sri Lanka; her world class love affairs with Paris and Paul Child; and her decades as America's beloved French chef. Karbo weaves in her own personal experiences and stops for important life lessons along the way: how to live by your whims, make the world your oyster, live happily married, work hard, and enjoy a life of full immersion. It celebrates Julia's indomitable spirit and irrepressible joy, giving readers a taste of what it means to master the art of living"--
How Georgia became O'Keeffe : lessons on the art of living by Karen Karbo( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people associate Georgia O'Keeffe with New Mexico, painted cow skulls, and her flower paintings. She was revered for so long--born in 1887, died at age ninety-eight in 1986--that we forget how young, restless, passionate, searching, striking, even fearful she once was--a dazzling, mysterious female force in bohemian New York City during its heyday. In this distinctive book, in her characteristic style, Karen Karbo makes one of the greatest women painters vital and relevant for yet another generation. She chronicles O'Keeffe's early life, her desire to be an artist, the key moment when art became her form of self-expression, and her passionate love affair with master photographer Alfred Stieglitz. She also explores a range of universal themes--from how to discover and nurture your individuality to what it means to be in a committed relationship while maintaining your independence, from finding your own style to developing the ability to take risks.--From publisher description
