Nonfiction Tuesday - Paris A Love Story

Kati Marton first spent time in Paris during college in 1968, when France was in revolt; as a young student she was inspired by researching the history of her survivalist family who had escaped from communist Hungary to France.

Ten years later, Paris was the setting for her big career break as ABC bureau chief, as well as where she found passionate love with Peter Jennings, the man to whom she was married for 15 years and had two children. It was again in Paris, years later, where she found enduring love with her husband, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke.

And it was to Paris where Kati returned in order to rebuild her spirit in the wake of Richard’s death. Kati Marton’s newest memoir is a candid exploration of many kinds of love, as well as a love letter to the city of Paris itself.

Recently, a French teacher from our high school came in with this book that was well overdue. She told me she was going to have to buy this book. She read it twice in fact. She loved this nonfiction book that much. She said the book really showed the energy of city of days gone by and how the author still loved Paris now.-ellie
