The Globe and Mail’s Deirdre Kelly joins me now. She’s the author of a new memoir, her first book, Paris Times Eight: Finding Myself in the City of Dreams. It’s a delightful memoir about her many trips to Paris, France. She talks about what her visits to France meant in terms of how she viewed her life, and how it subsequently shaped it. She first travelled to Paris thirty years ago, and eight times since she’s gone back under different circumstances, each interesting and introspective.
