She joined the company in 1957 working primarily on translations of French writers such as Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre. In addition to her literary authors (John Updike, Ann Tyler, and many others), she’s developed a list of first-rate cookbook writers including Julia Child (Judith published Julia’s first book and was her editor ever after), Lidia Bastianich, James Beard, Marion Cunningham, Rosie Daley, Marcella Hazan, Madhur Jaffrey, Edna Lewis, Jacques Pépin, Claudia Roden, Nina Simonds, and others. She is the co-author with Evan Jones (her late husband) of The Book of Bread: Knead It, Punch It, Bake It! (for children) and The Book of New New England Cookery. She is the author of The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food (Knopf 2007) and The Pleasures of Cooking for One (Knopf 2009). In 2006, Judith was awarded the James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award.
