AN AMERICAN IN PARIS: Profile of an Interlude Between Two Wars

The New Yorker's Letters from France -- profiles, current events, all kinds of characters jostling each other -- highspot the pre-politically minded 20's. Such varied figures as Queen Mary (the non-changing personality delightfully, intimately sympathetically done), Bullitt, Picasso, Elsie de Wolfe, Coty, Stravinsky, Pons, Elsa Maxwell, Worth, Malnbocher, Stavisky; then crimes and scandals, a 1935 article on Hitler; inside stuff with plenty of color and detail. Good reading.
