Opinion

From Library Staff

A printing press of his own, a marriage of convenience with a wealthy lesbian, and friendships with some of the well-known writers and artists of a generation...it's just the kind of biography I like.

McAlmon was certainly there, in the prime time of the expatriate artistic and literary community in Paris in the 1920s. He can name drop with the best of them (Stein, Joyce, Hemingway, Brancusi...) and writes respectably, but without feeling. He is the ultimate critic, finding fault with everyone except for himself and maybe James Joyce. For a more human feel and readable story of this time I'd recommend Glassco or Elliot Paul. After one chapter of Kay Boyle I just skipped her chapters. You may wish to as well.
