Hi, I just joined this site. I noticed that you're into Memoir Books. Have you read Home After Dark? Here's a link:
Hello all "LG" members! To try to spur us all on to do a bit more on our LG site, I thought I'd write each of you a note.
I have a renewed interest in LG due to the horrid (13degrees) weather here. I was bored & perused my lost generation books where I came upon "Found Meals of the Lost Generation", by Suzanne Rodriguez-Hunter. When I purchased the book, I must admit I looked at the recipes & ignored the accompanying text. In reading it through, I am finding it a delight. Neat little thumbnail sketches of the time with recipes for foods they served/may have served in Paris. The book is dotted with post-its & my Amazon cart has some new things to read, e.g., "Nightwood" by Djuna Barnes.
Am looking forward to some news from our members as to what new relevant books you've read or really, anything to do with the time. Thanks, Judie
Dear Craig, Never have I lingered so long in reading a book as I have in yours. I like to think I know a lot about Paris in the '20's and its resultant "Lost Generation", but I have gleaned ever so much more information from "Writing the Lost Generation". Characters of the time, whom I chose to know only to their "first layers" have been re-introduced to me as important to their time. Bravig Imbs is an example,as is Samuel Putman, both deserving of in-depth study by me.
I gave up on cataloging all the new info onto my pc & am now flagging the important pages for future incorporation! Your book is a flurry of neon pinks, greens, yellows & purples marking the pages.
I continue to marvel at your composition of blending people, times & places as you have done. Bravo! Judie
I guess I am a feeb-I gave you his e-mail! The website
