Maine writer Paula Young Lee begins her memoir: “This is a love story for grown ups. There is sex, death and snoring. A happy ending is not guaranteed… it is a story about hunting. The real kind that starts with hunting and ends with guts being spilled.”

Paula Young Lee, fellow at the Center for Animals and Public Policy at Tufts. Her memoir is called, “Deer Hunting In Paris: A Memoir Of God, Guns And Game Meat.” She’s also written, “Game: A Global History“.
