In April of 1931 many American expatriates were leaving Paris because of the Depression that followed the stock market crash of 1929. A gifted but naive young couple, James & Dorothy Farrell, moved against the current. They followed a dream of personal & artistic freedom & moved to Paris. Branch brings to life this formative year of the young author & his wife. Their Paris story is embedded in the lives of other expatriates like Ezra Pound & Kay Boyle, who also were defining their times. This book is complemented by photos of persons & places interwoven with the young Farrells. The Paris sojourn influenced the rest of their lives & the writing of “Young Lonigan” & “Gas-House McGinty,” & it altered the face of American literature. Photos.
