The book: My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud'Homme
The song: "C'est Trop Beau" by Tino Rossi
The connection: I must confess, I can not seem to rush My Life in France. I am relaxing and relishing every moment of it. Almost as if, I have taken Julia's pace. It also has me thinking of French Kiss (1995) with Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan (one of my favorite movies and soundtracks). Which is what lead me to this song. It is so deliciously sweet and old fashioned. It seems to embody Julia's love for everything around her and fits the time period pretty closely. I believe it means "this is too beautiful" and was recorded in 1952.
