Free as Gods: How the Jazz Age Reinvented Modernism.
Lebanon: ForeEdge, 2017. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Among many art, music and literature lovers, particularly devotees of modernism, the expatriate community in France during the Jazz Age represents a remarkable convergence of genius in one place and period-one of the most glorious in history. The outpouring of boundary-pushing novels, paintings, ballets, music, and design was so profuse that it belies the brevity of the era (1918–1929). Drawing on unpublished albums, drawings, paintings, and manuscripts, Charles A. Riley offers a fresh examination of both canonic and overlooked writers and artists and their works, by revealing them in conversation with one another. Item #28274
