325 g; this is a verbatim reproduction of the diary of Lesley Ann Nash "Nash" during the years 1947-1954 when she served as manager of the Parisien jazz nightclub "Aerobleu." There is also an afterword by Alston Chase. "That's all I know. But Lesley Anne's personal story accounts for only half the fascination of this memoir. It is also the Chronicle of the time, of a generation, of the chaos and excitement of post-war Paris and early revolutionary Cuba. It tells the story of a golden age of jazz that emerged from the rubble of World War II, and it offers candid portraits of the literary and artistic illuminati who frequent at Left Bank clubs at that time. And it offers a tantalising account of the early Cold War era that might cause scholars to revise their interpretations of this period." -- from the afterword. Bound in brown cardboard, arranged in a satchel formation, with the keyhole on the front flap having been slightly enlarged by the stationery screw. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.
