About the book:

Kiki's Paris: Artists and Lovers 1900-1930 presents a delightful evocation of the life of Alice Prin, or Kiki, and her generation in Paris--from her favorite cafés and the cramped artists' studios where she modeled to her relationships with so many of the great artists of the period. The historical and personal details culled from books, memoirs, and letters alone would constitute a fabulous biography; with the photographs--more than 650--the book is transformed into a work of art in its own right. Publisher's Weekly raves, "Kiki ... was outrageous, charming, beautiful, talented--and so is the Paris that emerges. We see ... Matisse, Modigliani, Picasso, Man Ray, Stein, Léger, Cocteau, Brancusi, Soutine and hundreds of others...." Kiki's Paris is a paean to the heady blossoming of an era and the height of the artists' community in Montparnasse, vividly woven from the fragile strands of time. It is impossible to walk away from this book unaffected: even Paris-phobes will swoon under the influence of such intoxicating nostalgia. --Jhana Bach
