Description


In The Golden Moments of Paris, John Baxter uncovers fascinating true stories about the characters that gave Paris its "character" in the years between World War I and World War II. Explore one of the world's most beautiful and loved cities in 26 fact-filled, humorous, and dramatic stories about the famed Années 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.
