Child's Play: Julie Powell Talks About Having Her Life Made Into a Movie. Kind Of.
But Powell's in town today -- hey, look, she had tacos for lunch -- and about an hour ago we sat down at her hotel to talk about having one's life story merged, at times rather uncomfortably, with that of a cultural icon who taught the world to cook and taught a self-proclaimed government drone "what it takes to find your way in the world," as Powell writes in the book. Below is our interview, fresh out of the oven. And for those playing along at home, you can still find her blog -- The Julie/Julia Project -- resting comfortably right here.
