About This Item

New York: Broadway Books, 1999. viii, 470 pages, illustrations; 21 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dogeared a couple of times. Age toning. Lost Generation couple, painter Gerald and Sara Murphy. Gerald was a remarkably good artist and stage designer, who created proto-Pop cubist still-lifes akin to Stuart Davis and Charles Sheeler. "Gifted artist Gerald Murphy and his elegant wife, Sara, were icons of the most enchanting period of our time; handsome, talented, and wealthy expatriate Americans, they were at the very center of the literary scene in Paris in the 1920s. In Everybody Was So Young--one of the best reviewed books of 1995--Amanda Vaill brilliantly portrays both the times in which the Murphys lived and the fascinating friends who flocked around them. Whether summering with Picasso on the French Riviera or watching bullfights with Hemingway in Pamplona, Gerald and Sara inspired kindred creative spirits like Dorothy Parker, Cole Porter, and F. Scott Fitzgerald (Nicole and Dick Diver in Tender is the Night were modeled after the Murphys). Their story is both glittering and tragic, and in this sweeping and richly anecdotal portrait of a marriage and an era, Amanda Vaill 'has brought them to life as never before' (Chicago Tribune). / Amanda Vaill is a writer and critic whose work has appeared in numerous national publications. This is her first book. She lives in New York City." - Publisher.. Paperback. Good. 8vo.
