22 Days until THE BONES OF PARIS…
It’s 22 days until The Bones of Paris, Laurie R. King’s suspense novel of 1929 Paris.
From page 218: The Dôme was the most American of the American-driven cafes on the boulevard Montparnasse. Every second shouting mouth bore a New York accent, and the rest were from Chicago or Jersey.
The social interactions of a café terrace have long fascinated me: sooner or later, everyone spots, and is spotted by, all of Montparnasse. This inspired the video “A Conversation”, an imagined episode on the Dôme terrace one September afternoon in 1929, between Man Ray, Ernest Hemingway, Kiki of Montparnasse, and Salvador Dalí. My son and brother-in-law did most of the work on the video, although the words are mine.
