University of Nebraska Press,
A Near Fine copy with a remainder stripe to the bottom edge. From 1925 until 1975, Janet Flanner wrote The New Yorker's Letters From Paris under the pseudonym Genet. In 1921, Flanner traveled to Paris with her female lover and a few years later became the Paris correspondent for the New Yorker Magazine. On her arrival in Paris in the '20s, she was drawn into the community of expatriates whose names still glitter today: Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Sylvia Beach, Ernest Hemingway, Kay Boyle. . . . In addition to her Letters From Paris, The New Yorker published her lengthy profiles of some of the foremost figures in 20th-Century art, literature and politics, among them Pablo Picasso, Edith Wharton, even Adolf Hitler. Although she left France for the United States during World War II, on her return, she traveled widely to report on the war's aftermath, including the Nuremberg trials. For fifty years, she contributed regular columns on life on the Continent and most specifically the expatriate life in Paris.
