Description
 
Christopher Sawyer-Laucanno (au). Between 1944 & 1960, a second wave of expatriate American writers took up residence in Paris, some seeking the bohemian life that Paris had offered earlier generations, some escaping from racist & materialistic aspects of the U.S. Richard Wright, James Jones, James Baldwin, William Styron, Chester Himes, George Plimpton, Harry Matthews, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gregory Corso, Alexander Trocchi, & William S. Burroughs are among those who produced important & enduring poetry & fiction in Paris. This book is an entertaining account of the friendships & associations they formed, the cross-cultural influences they experienced, what they discovered, & what they brought back.
