French Seduction: An American’s Encounter with France, Her Father, and the Holocaust.
In a passionate blend of autobiography and cultural history, love, sex and art collide with hatred, withering French xenophobia and death, Eunice Lipton, our guest in this edition of Radio Curious, describes her book, “French Seduction: An American’s Encounter with France, Her Father, and the Holocaust.” Lipton, who lives in Paris and New York received her Ph.D. in art history at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts. I spoke with her from her home in New York City the last week of March 2007. Because she describes painting as her favorite companions, we began when I asked her to tell us about her friends who she calls art.
Eunice Lipton recommends “The Good Soldier: A Tale of Passion,” by Ford Madox Ford..
