Confessions of a Harvard Man: Paris & New York in the 1920s &30s.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Stearns, Harold.

Publisher Information:
The Paget Press, Sutton West: : 1984.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine mylar dust jacket. Harold Stearns was a prolific journalist and editor during the 20s and 30s and traveled to Paris in 1921 to become part of the expatriate community there. It was Stearns who encouraged New York publisher Horace Liveright to publish Hemingway's "In Our Time." While living in Paris, Stearns wrote for the Paris Tribune eventually penning a column in the paper on horse racing called "Peter Pickem." Stearns was known for his lack of funds while living in Paris and was always hitting up friends for money so much so that Hemingway used him as a model for the indigant Harvey Stone in his novel "The Sun Also Rises."
