Paris: A Love Story
by Kati Marton

Paris: A Love Story This is a memoir for anyone who has ever fallen in love in Paris, or with Paris. Or for anyone who has ever had their heart broken or their life upended.

In this candidly honest candid memoir, award-winning journalist and distinguished author Kati Marton narrates an impassioned and romantic story of love, loss, and life after loss. Paris is at the heart of this deeply moving account. At every stage of her life, Marton finds beauty and excitement in Paris, and now, after the sudden death of her husband, Richard Holbrooke, the city offers a chance for a fresh beginning. With intimate and nuanced portraits of Peter Jennings, the man to whom she was married for fifteen years and with whom she had two children, and Holbrooke, with whom she found enduring love, Marton paints a vivid account of an adventuresome life in the stream of history.

"I stayed up last night and read this book cover to cover. I can't remember the last time I did that. It is wonderful—touching, romantic and honest—and oh, how it made me want to go to Paris!"
—Barbara Walters

"A great read—the lightness of love, the drama of war and sudden death—with Paris in the background."
—Fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg

"Like... Didion, Joyce Carol Oates... The book, short and intimate, reads like the wind from the urgency of the opening scene."
—Susan Cheever, Newsweek
