Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A very distinguished sidelight on the passing literary scene, perceptive, humorous, entertaining, written by a critic and editor who was one of the group of which he writes.” —Kirkus.

 

 

 “Not a sentimental picture of Paris, it is rather an attempt to explain the reasons for the exodus and return to the United States. Recomrnended.”—Library Journal.

 “Enter­taining and analytic accounts of Cocteau, Hemingway, Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Pirandello; and an ingenious explanation of Ezra Pound’s apostasy.”—Theatre Arts
