Also, I suspect that Ms. Flanner was a delightful person, but her articles seem somewhat preoccuped with those who were recently "departed" or had been for some time and were being then remembered by Parisians. At times it is a little on the morose side. Although I don't recall her mentioning this, at times she, too, seems slightly overwhelmed with "Lacrimae Mundi" (the tears of the world).
All in all, it seems that even in her days (1925-1939) Ms. Flanner was telling her readers that "you're too late" ... Paris was YESTERDAY.
What a fascinating life she lived, and the people she met! She was also the dignified presence sitting between Gore Vidal and Norman Mailer during their infamous appearance on the Dick Cavett show.
A great read that was delivered in great shape.
