Literary inspirations

We’ve been reading books about life in Paris from different generations and cultures. The one we’re absorbed in now is the story of Sylvia Beach (and The Lost Generation) who founded the Shakespeare & Company Bookstore in Paris and did the original publication of Joyce’s Ulysses and in doing so served as a hub of literature for many artists during the twenties and thirties.

Book here: Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation: A History of Literary Paris in the Twenties and Thirties
