Synopsis: Book by Hansen, Arlen J.

From Publishers Weekly: For travelers, Francophiles and the curious, this gossipy retrospective of expatriate life in Paris in the 1920s is a mosaic of quick glimpses--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. The hundreds of short entries are organized geographically around 32 neighborhoods. Turn to "Hotel Ritz," and you learn that novelist Elinor Glyn stayed there as a WW I reporter, and that F. Scott Fitzgerald's story "Babylon Revisited" begins and ends at the hotel's bar. William Faulkner, Coco Chanel, Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall and Isadora Duncan are among the luminaries whose selective doings can be tracked with the aid of indexes that cross-reference streets, places, names and topics.
