Free as Gods: How the Jazz Age Reinvented Modernism
Charles A. RileyCloth: $29.95
A stimulating book, partly because it takes a different approach to its subject, Paris in the 1920s, than many other books. And it looks at some of the lesser-known, or less talked about, writers and others who were around, but perhaps not noticeably so.
—The Penniless Press
[Profiles], such as the examination of Gerald Murphy’s art and collaborations with fellow artists, offer new insights into the fertile artistic environment of this remarkable place and time. . . . Recommended.
Riley’s book presents a great romp through one of the richest periods of artistic creation ever: Paris, 1918 to 1929. Newcomers and seasoned culture lovers alike will be treated to a fresh, full discussion of the artists, writers and musicians of the period and their dazzling paintings, writings and compositions.
—Kenneth Wayne, author of Modigliani and the Artists of Montparnasse
