Shakespeare and Company
by Sylvia Beach
Paris in the 1920s! Imagine lounging in cafés late into the night and discussing the latest works of Joyce, Hemingway and Fitzgerald (who are also your neighbors and friends)! Author Sylvia Beach lived that dream life. An American who owned a bookshop specializing in American works, her store was frequented by all the major players of the era. Beach shares stories of her shop, her talented friends and her account of publishing Joyce’s Ulysses and smuggling it into America.
