John Baxter has uncovered more fascinating true stories about the characters that gave Paris its "character" in the years between World War I and World War II. Explore more about one of the world's most beautiful and loved cities in twenty-six fact-filled, humorous, and dramatic stories about the famed Annees Folles--the Crazy Years at the turn of the 20th century in Paris. Learn about Gertrude Stein and her famous writers' salon, Salvador Dali and the Surrealists, the birth of Chanel No. 5, and the antics of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the "lost generation." Then see what these areas look like today by following along on the guided walking tours of Paris's historic neighborhoods and the cafes, clubs, and brothels that were home to the intellectuals, artists, and Bohemians, illustrated with color photographs and period maps. If you enjoyed Woody Allen's film "Midnight in Paris," you'll love this book.

It has tiny light gray print on shiny coated paper. Almost impossible to read.
