Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and Lucinda Franks on Her New Book “Timeless”

Encore: December 21, 2014

Lucinda Franks and Robert Morgenthau first met in 1973. At the time, she was a 26-year-old self-described radical hippie and a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and he was a widower nearly 30 years her senior who would soon become Manhattan’s district attorney.

Not exactly a match made in heaven? Maybe. But that meeting led to an improbable love affair which in turn resulted in a marriage that has thus far lasted 36 years. Franks chronicles the affair and the marriage in her new book Timeless: Love, Morgenthau and Me.
