Paris Alive, the Point of View of an Americanby Raphael Soyer, Judith Clancy, Lawrence Ferlinghetti
"...one of those few foreigners who have proven to be able to detect, in details of the architecture of Paris and in the life of its various neighborhoods, the social and intellectual evolution of the French capital...might well illustrate some of the beautiful descriptions of Paris of such masters of French prose as Gerard de Nerval, Baudelaire, Jean Lorrain, Leon-Paul Fargue or Louis Aragon."
From the critic Edouard Roditi's essay.
"Judith Clancy's drawings belong not only to Paris, but to the urban world at large. Her swift and incisive pen has the same veracity when she sketches her own city of San Francisco. Yet she brings to Paris a unique sympathy--already wonderfully subtle and sincere in her book of drawings and collages of the Gare de Lyon and its legendary restaurant (Not a Station But a Place, isbn 0-912184-02-7)--which sets her somewhat apart from other Americans who have brought the city to life in quick-flowing ink. Among the other memories, there are reminiscences of Ludwig Bemelmans, and even more Saul Steinberg. But such remembrance is part of her modern self, true to her vision, true to the city."
From Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Allan Temko's essay.
