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.
