The Bones of Paris finds one-time Bureau of Investigation agent Harris Stuyvesant plunging into the tempestuous 1929 Montparnasse community of American writers, artists, and hangers-on. Paris in the Twenties is a visual feast, from the street scenes to the artists’ ateliers.
That’s why I’ve begun a pair of Pinterest pages where I can pour all the images I’ve been living with for the last year. Some of them show Paris in the Twenties (like Josephine Baker, here in her banana costume), others are of artists and writers active in 1929, and still others are specific to The Bones of Paris and the lives of Harris Stuyvesant and his friends Bennett and Sarah Gray.
While I was at it, I decided to put together a similar page for Touchstone, from the 1926 General Strike to the bucolic countryside of Hurleigh House.
