It was the fabulous summer of 1929 when the literary capital of North America moved to La Rive Gauche-the Left Bank of the Seine River-in Paris. Ernest Hemingway was reading proofs of A Farewell to Arms, and a few blocks away F. Scott Fitzgerald was struggling with Tender Is the Night. As his first published book rose to fame in New York, Morley Callaghan arrived in Paris to share the felicities of literary life, not just with his two friends, Hemingway and Fitzgerald, but also with fellow writers James Joyce, Ford Madox Ford, and Robert McAlmon. Amid these tangled relations, some friendships flourished while others failed.

This tragic and unforgettable story comes to vivid life in Callaghan's lucid, compassionate prose. Also included in this new edition are essays by Callaghan on Hemingway, Joyce, Fitzgerald, and McAlmon, as well as the author's look back to those days in Paris and when he revisited 60 years later. The texts are followed by questions for discussion and related readings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"If there is a better story writer in the world we don't know where he is." --"The New York Times"
"His unobtrusive art is more subtle and his intelligence more mature than those of either [Hemingway or Fitzgerald]. Callaghan's book will surprise and shock the Hemingway fans." --Edmund Wilson
