I read with interest and delight Twilight of the Belle Epoque.,
This review is from: Twilight of the Belle Epoque: The Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, Renault, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, and Their Friends through the Great War (Hardcover)
I found the study very readable and in-depth in the way she wove the lives of the poets, artists, musicians and the history during the two decades, much like the novelist John Dos Passos did in his USA Trilogy. Her work is in the high echelon of belle epoque and fin de siecle studies such as Raymond Rudorff's the belle epoque paris in the nineties, 1972, and wittgensteins vienna by Allan Janik and Stephen Toulmin, 1973, and 1996.
