Annotation

Transnational study treating the cultural exchange between Parisians and Americans following World War I. Blower details the American impact on the economy, politics, and culture of Paris and how Paris helped to shape the new American identity in the early twentieth century. Counters Hemingway’s characterization of the expatriates in The Sun Also Rises as escapists with her broad portrait of the expatriates’ devotion to art, interest in foreign affairs, and commitment to liberal politics.
