Description for CLEAVING: A STORY OF MARRIAGE, MEAT, AND OBSESSION by Julie Powell:

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.

Read by Julie Powell and is approximately 10.5 hours in length on 9 discs.
