The Twilight Years: Paris in the 1930s.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Wiser, William.
Carroll & Graf,
A Fine unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. Wiser, author of The Crazy Years: Paris in the Twenties, provides readers with Paris's next historical chapter in a wonderfully detailed, unflinching period description. Focusing primarily on the art scene, Wiser re-creates the slow slide from the lingering euphoria of the '20s to the doubts of the '30s. The suicide of painter Jules Pascin, recounted in Wiser's first chapter, serves as an emblem for the era, a period in which fascism and economic crisis loomed and Bohemia began to sour.
