With Tom Johnston, the man who broke Julia’s heart

Turns out the most famous chef in history was a notorious party girl in college. Here she is with her boyfriend, Tom Johnston, the guy who broke Julia’s heart, the full, sad saga, of which, appears in Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, published on August 8th to coincide with the 100th anniversary of her birth. Sure, she landed a lifelong mate in Paul, but the ghost of Tom always hovered. I’ve had some romantic setbacks, but can’t imagine a superficial college fling having that much of an impact, can you?
