Library Journal draws a comparison with a book of Julia Child’s letters in a review of “The Courtship of Two Doctors” (October 15 issue, Health & Medicine): “As biographer Joan Reardon (As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto) recently showed, collections of personal correspondence can provide a fascinating slice of life and the interplay of unique personalities. The Holoubeks’ letters show them to have been enormously likable, and the book shines with their modesty, consideration for each other, and concerns for humanity.”
