Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This easily digestible work serves as an excellent companion to Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris as well as being a good companion on a short trip to Paris. It provides a detailed sketch of the city in the years after World War One, sets out the reasons for the expatriates (mostly, but not exclusively' American) settling (and, in some cases, visiting - for a visit qualifies one for inclusion meaning meaning that you get more artiste for your buck) and the reasons for (in most cases) leaving. TS Elliot. James Joyce and Ezra Pound as well as co-stars of the Movie, Ernest Hemingway, F Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein all feature. The author also seeks to capture the key features of the writers' leading work and placing them in their modernist context. The artistic movements in Paris at the time are also touched upon with another of the greats that featured in the movie, Pablo Picasso, getting a mention.

This is a short and concise guide to the lost generation authors and artists who lived in Paris in the interwar period. It can serve as an excellent introduction to this era and its prominent figures or, as in my case, a very good refresher. The kindle copy comes also with a further reading list at the end which is also a great asset.

Like a book report 27 April 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Not very enlightening for anyone with more than a cursory understanding of the topic. Reads like a book report. It is heavily tainted by the opinions of the writer, but is so shallow and narrow that the opinions never go beyond unsupported whims. I can't recommend this for anyone who wants more than a book report about the subject matter.

A GUIDE & REFERENCE of 1920's "Lost Generation" 2 Jan. 2014
By Sonya@Hollywood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The catchy title "The Real Midnight in Paris" is what first got my attention and convinced me to buy this book. After seeing Woody Allen's charming movie "Midnight in Paris" and his realistic portrayals of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Cole Porter and many other expatriate artists living in Paris in the 1920's, I was hooked and inspired to learn more. Author Paul Brody writes well and provides interesting tidbits behind the "Lost generation" of post World War I. His book is only 73 pages long, but offers easy to read short summaries of famous writers of the time. "The Real Midnight in Paris: A History of the Expatriate Writers in Paris that Made Up the Lost Generation" is at best, a beginner's reference. Although Brody provides a little history and background of the famous expatriates living in 1920's Paris, his book will not give you an in depth study. It will however, entice the reader to research more about these colorful and famous writers in other books. If you want to know what these writers were going through or thinking, Books like "A Moveable Feast" offers firsthand insight and a cafe's chair next to Hemingway as he writes his personal observations of Paris in the 20's. I do however recommend reading Brody's book, if anything to have a guide book at your fingertips, dates of publications and a list of literary works that made these expatriates forever famous and part of the "lost generation."

slow and lackluster 27 April 2013
By Joe Brannin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It had a very narrow scope. For such an interesting time in history not much of it came across. It did not include enough of the people who were there at the time nor did it link world events to the writing.
I have not read anything similar to it that was not semi-fiction.

A good introduction to the lost generation. 11 Feb. 2013
By Thomas Wingelnik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a good introduction to the writers, poets and artists of the lost generation. Including a little historical background and key influences to set the stage and shed some light on both the well known and lesser known figures of this important literary movement. Brief but worth the read.

Good overview of the times 25 May 2014
By Lady Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is just a high level summary of the times. It gave a good list of the artists of the lost generation but little of their times together in Paris.
