The effect of all those changes has been to make it a more beautiful city, a statelier city, a city more suggestive than ever of power and population. Mr. Le Gallienne himself remains young in appearance, although he is not so boyishly young in years as he once was, and he retains all his old good looks, for good looks should never die in a poet. We now know Mr. Yoshio Markino, who came to us from Japan, as a clever, even as a brilliant artist. It seems, however, that when he set out for England, it was not to conquer it as an artist but as an author. He hoped, he tells us, to become a poet or writer in English, but when he sought to achieve this, he met with nothing but disappointment. He had to make a livelihood in much smaller ways until the chance came of using his brush, and then he quickly found fame, and one hopes a pretty good livelihood. Mr. Alfred Noyes somewhat surprised the Americans by telling them that he thought Emerson the greatest poet they had produced, because he was at the same time a thinker. He also expressed his admiration for Whitman, and put Poe, whom Americans themselves might rank first, third in the list. Naturally Mr. Alfred Noyes is acquainted with the delightful verse of Eugene Field, and indeed in his talks with interviewers he showed a complete acquaintance with American poetry old and new. This pleased the Americans, on whom generally Mr. Noyes has made a pleasant impression, and he is going back next year to Boston to deliver the Lowell Lecture. The cheap reprint is not quite so securely placed a thing in America as it is here. In fact, a leading New York bookseller has been jeering at it as the spoilt . . .

"Looking back over the years now, you could probably say that I'm like those writers who keep on writing and revising the same book all their lives. Although there might have been changes in the course of my career, I still consider my entire production as a single work, including the things I did before 1954. When I started out in the 1940s I was deliberately trying to break away from the officially accepted languages and explore new directions. At the time, abstract art, in its most geometric and constructivist form, appeared to be very important. But I attempted to move away from its excessive preoccupation with form and bring in other references that I felt It lacked. The same thing happened with Surrealism. Even though It also had a great influence on me, it somehow struck me as insufficient. I am talking now about that branch of Surrealism which advocated absolute confusion and belittled any kind of rational control. I've always believed that any work of art needs a structure, no matter how open it might be. It also needs to be rooted in a set of principles and inner convictions based upon the accumulated wisdom of our times." This book has 58 pages and is profusely illustrated.. Not Given.

Bound in the original black and cream wraps, printed in red and green with an image of Eifel Tower on the front. From the front cover's turn-in flap: "A richly imagined and stunningly inventive literary masterpiece of love, art, and betrayal, exploring the genesis of evil, the unforeseen consequences of love, and the ultimate unreliability of storytelling itself. Paris in the 1920s shimmers with excitement, dissipation, and freedom. It is a place of intoxicating ambition, passion, art, and discontent, where louche jazz venues like the Chameleon Club draw expats, artists, libertines, and parvenus looking to indulge their true selves. It is at the Chameleon where the striking Lou Villars, an extraordinary athlete and scandalous cross-dressing lesbian, finds refuge among the club's loyal denizens, including the rising Hungarian photographer Gabor Tsenyi, the socialite and art patron Baroness Lily de Rossignol; and the caustic American writer Lionel Maine. As the years pass, their fortunes -- and the world itself -- evolve. Lou falls desperately in love and finds success as a race car driver. Gabor builds his reputation with startlingly vivid and imaginative photographs, including a haunting portrait of Lou and her lover, which will resonate through all their lives. As the exuberant twenties give way to darker times, Lou experiences another metamorphosis -- sparked by tumultuous events -- that will warp her earnest desire for love and approval into something far more.".

Francine Prose Francine Prose Explains the Genesis of Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932 Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932 began with a Brassai photograph I saw at a museum show in Washington. I was familiar with the photo, "Lesbian Couple at Le Monocle, 1932": a portrait of two women sitting at a table in a bar, one in a sparkly evening gown, the other in drag, with short hair and a tuxedo. But the wall text said something I hadn't known, which was that the woman in the tuxedo, a professional athlete named Violette Morris, had worked for the Gestapo during the German occupation of Paris and later been assassinated by the French Resistance. A little research turned up an even more interesting story. Morris was an Olympic hopeful and a professional auto racer. When her license to compete as an athlete was revoked by the French government, as punishment for being a public cross-dresser, Hitler somehow got wind of it, and invited Morris to be his special guest at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. By the time she got back to France, she was not only spying for the Germans, but she was the person who told them where the Maginot Line ended: wh biographical,genre fiction,historical,literary,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Harper
