"ART BUCHWALD DOES IT AGAIN. . . . A GREAT READ."
--Larry King, USA Today

In 1948, an American innocent named Art Buchwald set sail for Paris, France, determined to crash Hemingway's moveable feast and make himself famous. What's more, he did it.

Now he remembers those golden years--when he wrote for the Paris Herald Tribune, fell in love, spoofed Hemingway, dined with gangsters, and crashed costume balls in Venice. Everything that has made Buchwald one of the world's best-loved writers is in this funny, enchanting, poignant book.

"HONEST AND MOVING . . . A CONSUMMATE STORYTELLER."
--The New York Times Book Review

"ROLLICKING . . . The book gallops and gambols along. . . . Buchwald is a master of the anecdote."
--The Baltimore Sun

Review:

Art Buchwald's delightful romp through 1948 Paris is a witty tribute to the city he fell in love with. Existing on the GI Bill's munificence (until he's docked for skipping school and must work for the Herald Tribune instead), Buchwald recounts his youthful quest to become a great writer. He tells of when he met Hemingway (who asked if he'd ever wrestled a bear), lauds the pissoir as one of France's most civilized monuments, pays tribute to the café life, and writes of his hobnobs with James Thurber, Gregory Corso, Lauren Bacall, and Lena Horne (who found the priest who married him to Ann). From his Montparnasse garret to his induction by the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, he's a consummate storyteller, and his Paris is a witty gift.

About the Author:

Art Buchwald was born in Mount Vernon, New York, and raised in Hollis, Queens. After serving as a marine in the Pacific during World War II and attending the University of Southern California, he left the United States for Paris. There, Buchwald landed a job with Variety magazine and began writing his now-legendary columns, syndicated for decades in hundreds of newspapers. He received the Pulitzer Prize for outstanding commentary in 1982 and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1986. Buchwald was the author of thirty-three books, including the New York Times bestseller Leaving Home, a collection of political commentary, Beating around the Bush, and a memoir, Too Soon to Say Goodbye. He died in 2007.

Book Description Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Large type / large print edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The renowned humorist continues his best-selling memoirs, into the dazzling Paris of the late 1940s and the 1950s. Here we find twenty-two-year-old Art, in June 1948, one of the army of "fresh, peach-cheeked Americans" invading postwar France, and ready to embark on the greatest adventure of his life. Over the next fourteen years he would invent himself: a foster child from Queens suddenly hobnobbing with some of the most powerful and famous people in the world; landing a job with the legendary Paris Herald Tribune, with no legitimate experience whatsoever; and telling people where to go and what to eat mostly on the basis of his food-tasting experiences with the Marine Corps mess and the USC student union. He crashed costume balls in Venice, hunted bats in Sussex, ran with the bulls in Pamplona, clashed with police in Paris, spoofed Hemingway in the Congo, and dined with gangsters in Naples. From sidewalk cafes to society weddings, Buchwald reported on the folkways and foibles of the International Set, becoming everybody's favorite American in Paris - and one thing more. For in meeting and marrying a redhead named Ann, and then adopting three children, he also became what his foster childhood had never prepared him to be: a family man. This was perhaps his greatest invention of all. Seller Inventory # APC9780449912331
