The Right Place at the Right Time
Characterizes Paris of the 1920s as an escape from postwar America’s provincialism and puritanical hold. Cites also the low cost of living and the abundance of literary magazines and presses as key factors in drawing the expatriates. Chronicles the important roles of Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Sylvia Beach, and Ford Madox Ford as primary influences. Frequent references to A Moveable Feast.
