The author writes not only about the famous such as Matisse, Picasso, Josephine Baker, Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Joyce, and Gide, but about the Germans in the Cafe du Dome before 1914, the outlandish happening reeking of garlic sausage and red wine at the opening of Victor Hugos play, Hernani, the story of the now forgotten American women of color and their studios in the XIVth, the story of the banquet to honor the Symbolist poet Paul Fort which the Surrealists turned into a food and fist fight requiring the police and the paddy wagon, and much more!
