This is quite a spectacular book, a privileged look into the most famous English language bookstore in Paris, Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare & Company. Not only is it delightful to read the history of how Sylvia's modest dream became such a huge success, but it is also fascinating to read about Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and James Joyce when they were young. The language is rich and fulfilling, the photos insightful, and in the end, I really felt as if I had been part of it all, sitting in Sylvia's bookstore, hearing the rustle of pages as the day passed away.

Fitch's book provides a wonderful and detailed account of Sylvia Beach's role in promoting literature during the 1920s - 1939 period providing a wonderful insight into not only the period but the main characters of the day. A great deal of the book involves the publication of Joyce's 'Ulysses' by Beach as well as ups and downs with running S&Co. A must read for anyone interested in that period.
