Matched only by Hemingway's A Moveable Feast, Paris France is a "fresh and sagacious" (The New Yorker) classic of prewar France and its unforgettable literary eminences.
Celebrated for her innovative literary bravura, Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) settled into a bustling Paris at the turn of the twentieth century, never again to return to her native America. While in Paris, she not only surrounded herself with-and tirelessly championed the careers of-a remarkable group of young expatriate artists but also solidified herself as "one of the most controversial figures of American letters"-New York Times.
In Paris France with a new introduction from Adam Gopnik-Stein unites her childhood memories of Paris with her observations about everything from art and war to love and cooking. The result is an unforgettable glimpse into a bygone era, one on the brink of revolutionary change.
