A life in Paris remembered in print

My Parsi Dream by Kate Betts
My Parsi Dream by Kate Betts

As a young woman, American Kate Betts dreamed of being a foreign correspondent, and after graduating from Princeton University, she went to Paris to work as a freelance journalist. She became a senior editor at American Vogue, and later became the youngest ever editor of Harper's Bazaar.

Now aged 50, and living in New York, she reports for Time and CNN.

Her new book, My Paris Dream: An Education in Style, Slang, and Seduction in the Great City on the Seine, brings to life her love of France - from the nightclubs of 1980s Paris where she danced LeRoc, to the lavender fields of Provence, and the grand spectacle of the Louvre's Cour Carree.

The book is published by Random House, and is priced around €28.50.
