Love, Seduction and Survival—and Always, Paris

In 1950, Glynne Hiller, 26, goes to Paris with her husband, Joe, and her three-year-old daughter, Cathy, so they can all learn French and study in Paris. But after a year, Glynne leaves Joe. She doesn’t love him—in fact, she questions whether she’s ever been in love—and she seeks a more liberated life. Saucy and beautiful, Glynne charms one man after another, including the movie star Jean Gabin. Then she meets Maurice and her whole understanding of love changes.  Hiller, now 94, talks about that memorable and transformative experience with Fiction Editor Yona Zeldis McDonough.
