Miss Lily Keeps Them Talking in Paris
France is a nation of talkers. Intense one-on-one conversations take place everywhere, all the time. To a foreign ear it sounds like pigeons cooing.

Miss Lily wants people to talk to each other. NPR's Susan Stamberg sits down for a chat with this former interpreter to learn why she is at the center of so many conversations.
