''A Paris Table" A Novel by Allen J. Kourofsky
From the back cover: A young aspiring poet, tormented by the conflict between his aspirations, insecurities, and carnal desires, follows the expatriates who fled to 1920s Paris to escape the alienation felt in an America they saw as a phony, money-driven, puritanical wasteland of literary stagnation. Paris in the 1920s was seen by some as a decade-long party, but it was the center of a revolution in art, music, and the written word. A revolution fueled by the restless, reckless energy of youth. A magical time, the impacts of which are still felt today.
