"The travel albums of photographer George Platt Lynes, publisher Monroe Wheeler, and writer Glenway Wescott are illuminating documents of the American expatriate years. Together, this extraordinary menage-a-trois spent the heady inter-war period frequenting Paris, Villefranche-sur-Mer, and other European cities, meeting up with such lively personalities as Thornton Wilder, Jean Cocteau, Katherine Anne Porter, Man Ray, Rene Crevel, and Christian Berard. Inspired and encouraged by Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, and Jane Heap, all three men went on to pursue vibrant careers in the arts. Platt Lynes became a celebrated photographer, beginning in 1931; Wheeler started the extraordinary small press, Harrison of Paris, in 1930, before commencing a thirty-year career at New York's Museum of Modern Art; and Wescott became a bestselling fiction writer, first in 1927, with several highly acclaimed novels. The photographs are accompanied by two new original texts that help to interpret this remarkable triangular relationship, and that provide a context for this virtual who's who of the 1920s and 1930s."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
