Judith Jones

Posted on Oct 21, 2011 in Hiroko's Blog

Today I went to a party to celebrate Judith Jones’s retirement from Alfred Knopf. Her career lasted more than five decades working with noted authors such as John Updike, John Hersey, Elizabeth Bowen, Peter Taylor and Anne Tyler. When it comes to cookbook authors she worked with Julia Child, James Beard, Lidia Bastianish, Marcella Hazan, Madhur Jaffrey, Joan Nathan, Jacque Pepin and Claudia Roden. I am one of the very luckiest authors who can work with her. Here is her with me. At this retirement party she told me that she is freed! from forced obligations. She has many ideas and projects to spend her rest of her life fun and more meaningful.

Kanpai! (Toast) to her new career!
