Steamy Memoir Reveals His Long-Time Affair with Paulette Frankl

SANTA FE, N.M., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- September 22nd is the 7th anniversary of the death of the world's greatest mime. Marcel Marceau – with his alter-ego Bip – demonstrated the power of silence, enchanting audiences without ever uttering a word.

Marcel Marceau: The Man Behind the Mime. Steamy Memoir Reveals His Long-Time Affair with Paulette Frankl

Marceau took mime out of the streets and into the largest theaters on earth. His lasting legacy was the revelation that people all over the world are connected, not through language, but emotions. He was a master at playing his audiences' emotions like a cello, but he guarded his privacy and rarely revealed his own feelings.

In her memoir Marcel & Me  A Memoir of Love, Lust, and Illusion (Lightning Rod Publications), author and artist Paulette Frankl pulls back the curtain and removes the white face from this iconic performer to reveal him as a man, a friend and lover.

Frankl candidly shares her sizzling story about love, passion, sex and show biz. Marcel & Me is the tale of what happens when a young divorcee meets a seasoned superstar and accepts his invitation to join him on a one-week blind date, the repercussions of which last thirty-six years.

She shares this illuminating quote from Marceau:  "America has everything. What can I give it that it doesn't already have?" His answer? "Silence!"

This book also explores the deeper issues of survival (Marceau was a Jew who changed the family name from Mangel after his father was killed in Auschwitz), keeping creativity alive and maintaining one's humanity in the face of loss and all that life dishes out.

Marcel & Me is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Paulette Frankl is  the daughter of world-renowned Art Deco designer Paul T. Frankl, creator of Sky Scraper furniture. During her multi-faceted career, she has worked as a portrait artist, fine artist, a photojournalist and a courtroom sketch artist. Her courtroom art has appeared on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox TV, and has taken her all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Frankl has also been a working magician in Las Vegas. Her first book Lust for Justice: The Radical Life and Law of J. Tony Serra, has been on Amazon's e-book bestseller list for over three years.

In Marcel & Me Paulette Frankl calls to the fore all of her life experiences as artist, storyteller, wordsmith, mime, magician, musician, farmer and sensualist to bring to life the magic of Marcel Marceau.
