1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Bill Marsano on June 8, 2003
By Bill Marsano. Americans in Paris--certainly there's no shortage of literature on that theme. The post-World Wat I "lost generation" of Hemingway, Fitzgerald and others produced work of their own and inspired others to ramble incessantly about them and their world. But another generation of Americans in Paris has been rather neglected--the crowd that occupied Paris post-World War II.
They come back to us in this annoying but compulsively readable first novel. Annoying because there are lots of faults here: inefficient plotting, excessive explication, contradictory or even impenetrable motivation--all the sins first-novelists commit in their desperate and unnerving struggle to juggle their way to the end of the tale. Compulsively readable because this author is no callow youth but a seasoned world traveler who writes of youth--mostly misspent--through the filter of mature years.
The characters are young and tolerable only to the young--smug would-be intellectuals ready to change the world, scholars desperate for something to be scholarly about, arty types with too much angst and too little talent, emotionally vacant bed-fellows good only at getting between the sheets (the terms "emotionally unavailable" and "fear of committment" were yet to be dreamt-up) and earnest college girls eager and even desperate to bury their midwestern roots with spadefuls of Parisian sophistication. They interact feverishly, emptily and destructively and are helpless to do otherwise: They are young and powerful; they are privileged and they have it all--and they don't know it. They do each other a lot of damage before learning any lessons.
What drives this book is the truth of these these people.
