Description

Even ninety years later, the 1920s still roar in the collective imagination of writers, readers, painters, and dreamers. It was a wild time when flappers and philanderers challenged taboos. The guns of the Great War were finally silent, and a new kind of music, jazz, had invaded the clubs. The arts were booming, and great minds were converging on Paris to share, create, think, act, and live. Set in Paris in the Jazz Age, A Light in the Moon snaps to life iin the summer of 1928, in which the Amsterdam Olympic Games took place under warm drizzle, among the wettest and hottest summers on record. Teetering on the brink of financial collapse, it was the complicated era of Ernest Heming-way, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, D.H. Lawrence, Archibald MacLeish, King Vidor, Josephine Baker, fascism, clerical fascism, National Socialism, socialism and communism and Paris was the intellectual crossroad of this too-brief period.show more
