Entertaining reading, for anyone with a penchant for celebrities and a certain youthful curiosity about life in today's literary Paris. Fresh from Dart-mouth, determined to write a book in Paris, he dares himself into a journalistic job, meets all the literary and artistic lights, and transfers to paper his impressions with contagious vitality, humor at times, and an appreciation of his own rather naive brashness. Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas cross and recross the pages, Hemingway, Kay Boyie, Ford Madox Ford, George Antheil, James Joyce, Sylvia Beach -- they are all there, and many others less well known. As fresh and emotional as a novel of the bright young people. An author's book -- a book for moderns -- a book for youth.
