PARIS: A LOVE STORY

is for anyone who has ever had their heart broken or their life upended.

In this remarkably honest and 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. Inspirational and deeply human, "Paris: A Love Story "will touch every generation.

Reviews

"A great read-the lightness of love, the drama of war and sudden death-with Paris in the background." -- Diane von Furstenberg "Kati Marton is a writer of great clarity and grace. Paris: A Love Story is a revealing memoir about the contours of her own humanity, rendered with precision and honesty. It is a memorable story of love, loss and landscape that is as expansive as her remarkable life." -- Steve Coll, author of Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power "Paris provides a backdrop for this absorbing memoir of love and painful loss, played out on the larger stage of world politics....On a first-name basis with the political movers and shakers on a global stage, Marton has observed world politics in the making and makes space for readers on her catbird seat." * Kirkus Reviews * "Kati Marton has lived a thrilling and turbulent life. ... She fell in love with and married two famous men. ... She has been an eyewitness to history in all its cruelty. ... [I]n this memoir ... she grapples with an unexpected new stage of life: widowhood. ... [A] delicious read by a well-connected author." * The Washington Post * "[A] must-read . . . enthralling" * Vogue * "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 "Like . . . Didion, Joyce Carol Oates. . . . The book, short and intimate, reads like the wind from the urgency of the opening scene." -- Susan Cheever * Newsweek/The Daily Beast *
