Cassell, 1968, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Near Fine, Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine, First
In the years following the first World War there lived in the Montparnasse section of Paris an artist's model and nightclub entertainer known simply as Kiki. Sensuous, generous and uninhibited, cheered for her bawdy songs and adored for herself, she posed for paintings by Utrillo and Foujita, was photographed by Man Ray, written about by Hemingway. Frederick Kohner recalls the time, the place, and the girl, having known and loved all three. Through the bistros and the bordellos, to the invitational balls where the men wore formal attire and the women wore almost nothing, into the cold halls of the Sorbonne and the warm bed of his boarding-house.
