Helen Davis Featured Book: Paris a Love Story

parisIn 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.
