Description
 
A social history of the decade that took Paris, its avant-garde artists, and celebrated expatriates to the brink of the WWII. Despite the stock market crash of 1929, Paris lost none of its magical allure for artists and expatriates in the 1930s, with jazz orchestras, surrealism, and haute couture reinventing itself. James Joyce, Josephine Baker, Henry Miller, Anais Nin, Coco Chanel, Helena Rubinstein, Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli, T.S. Eliot, Katherine Anne Porter, Gertrude Stein, Sylvia Beach, Pablo Picasso, Janet Flanner, and Man Ray all flourished in Paris. This book tells their story, and the city’s. Chronicles the decade that fostered the brilliant creative revolution of the expatriate era -- but ended with the fall of Paris in 1940. Lavishly illustrated.
