Summary
Explore the history and bohemian glamour of Paris between the two world wars, with this unique traveler's companion. Paris has long been a center of art, culture, and romance-but during the 1920s, its magnetism was especially irresistible. From around the world writers, artists, and composers steamed in, to visit or linger, and in some cases to stay. Stories from this time and place abound: Sarah Bernhardt sleeping in a coffin to overcome her fear of death; Igor Stravinsky diving through a huge wreath at the premiere of his ballet Les Noces; Ford Madox Ford meeting Ernest Hemingway; Langston Hughes near starvation; Josephine Baker establishing her nightclub. Rich with anecdotes and gossip-and arranged by geographical sections with cross-references and maps-this book is a delight for both actual travelers and armchair travelers, documenting the Jazz Age denizens of the city, their haunts and habits, comings and goings, and relationships intimate and artistic
