Paris has long been a storied center of art and culture, and of romance, but in the 1920s its magnetism was especially irresistible. From around the world writers, artists, and composers steamed in, to visit or linger, some to reside. This book - a work of immense erudition spiced with anecdotes and gossip - documents their haunts and habits, their comings and goings, their relationships intimate and artistic.
The 1920s saw an influx of writers and artists make their home in Paris. Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Josephine Baker, and Cole Porter were among the luminaries who converged upon the city and turned it into an early-20th-century cultural destination. Arlen J. Hansen's Expatriate Paris is both a celebration and guide to that eminent epoch, brilliantly structured in geographical sections that inform the listener of various landmarks and histories. With an erudite performance by Robert Blumenfeld that elevates the city's charm and glamor, Expatriate Paris is a must-listen for travelers searching for lost excitement in the City of Light.
