There seems to be problem with your live stream. Audio constantly dropping.

Kati and Richard both have Jewish roots but were not brought up Jewish...what did that common experience mean to them?

Audio is out for the most part!! Occasionally it comes back for a moment. What is going on?

Is there something unseemly about her criticizing her two dead husbands?

I read Ms. Marton's 2 previous books, "The Great Escape" and "Enemies of the State" (or was it "Enemies of the People" -- can't recall exactly), and both were quite wonderful, and I have recommended both to friends and family.

And of course I shall read her latest effort.

Hooray for Ms. Marton!

Question for the guest: What scene in Paris today would you paint if you were a painter? Is there a neighborhood that is especially meaningful to you?
