Memoirs of Montparnasse.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Glassco, John.

Publisher Information:
Oxford University Press,, Toronto:: 1970..

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine bright price-clipped dust jacket with a small chip to the heel of the spine. John Glassco travelled to Paris in 1928 at the age of eighteen in a effort "to enjoy myself." And that he did. The first three chapters of this memoir were written not long after he arrived and speak to the initial excitement and wonder of the Bohemian life in Paris. Not until 1932, did Glassco set down his recollections of the remainder of his life in Paris where he mingled with the famous and the not-so-famous. Glassco was a hustler in the broadest sense of the word; he partied extensively and eventually supported himself as a male prostitute. He also made an effort to seek out the literary lions in Paris including Robert McAlmon, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway.
