Hawkins of the Paris Herald.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Hawkins, Eric and Robert Sturdevant.

Publisher Information:
Simon & Schuster, New York: 1963.

A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with a short closed edge tear to the front panel and light wear to the spine. Hawkins was the Paris Herald's managing editor from 1915 to 1960. The New York Herald's Paris edition began in 1887, and as Paris became more American, the Paris Herald followed suit. Managing editor Eric Hawkins felt his paper was "an incubator for the most colorful, competent and sometimes crazy newspapermen that ever populated a city room." Hawkins recaptures that long-lost generation of writers, not just the usual suspects (Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Janet Flanner, Henry Miller) but a parade of foreign correspondents, culture columnists, magazine freelancers (for The Boulevardier and Paris Comet), poets and novelists.There is much in this memoir of Paris in the 20s and those who made it an historical period.
