About the Book: Left Bank: Art, Passion and the Rebirth of Paris 19401950

the live fire of the war, the furnace of emotions, the passion of politics, the spectacular falling­outs, the brutal sex, the insane and beautiful ideas so many failures and some remarkable achievements After the horrors of war that shaped and informed them, Paris was the place where the worlds most original voices of the time came among them Norman Mailer, Miles Davis, Simone de Beauvoir, James Baldwin, Juliette Greco, Alberto Giacometti, Saul Bellow and Arthur Koestler.
