A ROOM IN PARIS by Peggy Mann


Email this review


Paris -- in the winter -- and the Left Bank where the prices have gone up and the values gone down lend a casual charm to the premarital honeymoon of Stanley, an abstract expressionist from South Amboy, N.J., and Janet Welles, who works for the ECA. Stanley, whose painting proves to be more of a pose than a gift, is Just looking for a girl to keep him warm--- Janet is looking for more than that and is to learn that Stanley's talent is pretty thin and only an excuse for living off his G.I. bill of rights. Ben, a steadier type, follows her to Paris from the states- she goes off with him to the Riviera- and in this time Stanley learns what she means to him, and what he is ready to become for her... A young and intimate quality here, but for some-possibly too emancipated.
