Goodreads asked Paulette Frankl:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Paulette Frankl I have had the good fortune to have known great people. The impetus to write about my relationship with Marcel Marceau was two-fold: 1/ I wanted to give back by honoring him in my own way, not from the point of view of a sycophant, but as the man that he was -- as I knew him, and that meant daring to get real and showing his humanity, as well as my own. 2/ When I began this memoir, I didn't feel that my own voice would be a match for his greatness, but it developed in the process. This book says a lot about us both.
