5 posts | 4 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
Noel Riley Fitch has written a perfect book, full to the brim with literary history, correct and whole-hearted both in statement and in implication. She makes me feel and remember a good many things that happened before and after my time. I'm glad to have lived long enough to read it. --Glenway Wescott

On this day, a hundred years ago, Sylvia Beach opened her English language bookshop in Paris! It also served as a lending library, and as a publishing house, becoming the first institution to publish James Joyce's Ulysses! 😍📚💕

This may include too much detail and too little narrative propulsion for most readers, but if you are interested in the Lost Generation, this book is a treasure trove of information. I particularly enjoyed learning about Sylvia Beach, the founder of Paris's original Shakespeare & Company bookstore and an inspiring female who, in some ways, acted as a Litsy for her time.😉

Listening to Erik Satie and reading about literary Paris in early 20th century.
