Victoria Loustalot discusses her memoir, This Is How You Say Goodbye, about grieving for difficult and charismatic father. When Victoria Loustalot was eight years old her father swept her up in a fantasy: a trip around the world. But it never happened, because her father was HIV positive and would die within three years. Some 15 years later, Victoria went to Stockholm, to Angkor Wat, and to Paris, the places they were meant to see together, to make peace with her father.
