Parishas long been a storied center of art and culture, and of romance, but in the1920s its magnetism was especially irresistible. From around the world writers,artists, and composers steamed in, to visit or linger, some to reside. For travelers, Francophiles and the curious, thisgossipy retrospective of expatriate life in Paris in the 1920s is a mosaic of quickglimpses-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 LesNoces, Ford Madox Ford meeting Ernest Hemingway, Langston Hughes nearstarvation, Josephine Baker establishing her nightclub. The list of expatriates is long and luminous,and this book-a work of immense erudition spiced with anecdotes andgossip-documents their haunts and habits, their comings and goings, theirrelationships intimate and artistic. Structured in thirty-three geographicaland very walkable sections, ExpatriateParis is cross-referenced by streets, names, and topics and equipped withnine maps to satisfy the most demanding traveler, whether real or armchair.
