Natalie Barney’s house: 20 rue Jacob.
From page 314: One drink wasn’t enough courage to face rue Jacob. Ten probably wouldn’t be. [Stuyvesant] did not give himself a chance to chicken out, but marched up the street to the house and knocked.
20 rue Jacob is a 17th century house where the American writer and heiress Natalie Barney, an outspoken lesbian, held weekly literary and artistic gatherings.
Homosexuality has been effectively legal in France since the Revolution in 1791, one of the contributing factors to the flowering of artistic life in the capital city after the Great War.
