Imagining Paris: Edile, Writing, and American Identity.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Kennedy, J. Gerald.

Publisher Information:
Yale University Press, New Haven: 1993.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Review copy with review slip laid-in. J. Gerald Kennedy explores the imaginative process of five expatriate Americans--Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Djuna Barnes--by showing how the experience of living in Paris shaped their careers and literary works. Kennedy discusses the inner map of Paris each of these authors reconstructed out of their various struggles to accommodate themselves to a complex, foreign scene; to construct an expatriate self; or to understand the contradictions of American identity. Citing passages from their major narratives, Kennedy demonstrates how the experiences of Paris not only liberated these modernist exiles intellectually and emotionally from their American roots but aroused feelings of alienation, displacement, and ambiguity.
