In my opinion, journalists often write the best books. Kati Marton has written an enjoyable memoir, Paris a Love Story, which focuses mainly on the periods of her life which were spent in Paris. During the sixties she was an American student at the Sorbonne. Paris was a time of wonder and enjoyment, and then the student riots began. After she went home she drifted into reporting, eventually becoming a TV news reporter. When she was transferred to Bonn, Germany she met and married ABC news anchor Peter Jennings. Time in Paris was always a part of the background. A second marriage was to renowned diplomat Richard Holbrooke and they were frequently in Paris together. The book is a window on an exciting, absorbing life and a beautiful and charming city.
