(Available December 1, 2013) THAT SUMMER IN PARIS (New Expanded Edition)
Morley Callaghan. 280 pages - $19.95
It was the fabulous summer of 1929 when the literary capital of North America had moved to the Left Bank of Paris. Hemingway was reading proofs to A Farewell to Arms, and a few blocks away Fitzgerald was struggling over Tender Is the Night. And Morley Callaghan, his first book published to acclaim in New York, arrived in Paris to share the felicities of the literary life, not just with his two friends, but with James Joyce, Ford Madox Ford, and Robert McAlmon. Amidst these tangled relations, some friendships flourished while others failed. A tragic and sad and unforgettable story told in Callaghans lucid compassionate prose.Also included in this new edition are comments by Callaghan on Hemingway, Joyce, Fitzgerald and McAlmon, beginning in that time early in his life, and ending with his reflection on returning to Paris at the end of his life. The texts are followed by questions for discussion, as well as related readings.
