Book DescriptionA poignant memoir of the Paris literary scene in the 1950s and 1960s by one of its protagonistsSome of last century's leading cultural figures are brought to life here, people who shaped our modern thinking and defined the tastes of an entire generation, changing forever the way we look at literature and the world around us. Drawing from the accounts of two fellow publishers Maurice Girodias and Barney Rosset, who were also active in the heady days of 1950s and 1960s Paris, London, and New York and from his own personal recollections, John Calder talks about the challenges of being a publisher in that era of censorship and political persecution and the problems faced by such writers as Beckett, Burroughs, Trocchi, and Miller to have their work accepted and recognized. Told in John Calder's trademark raconteur style and peppered with salacious, revealing, and entertaining anecdotes, thisbook will appeal both to the general reader and anyone who is interested in the social and cultural history of the 20th century."
Editorial ReviewIt is Calder's endearingly inexhaustible appetite for experimental writing, and its concomitant internationalism, which have so distinguished his contribution to world literature. "Times""
