Paris: A Love Story

  • From the Publisher

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 Jew­ish 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.
