Synopsis

'Souhami is an exceptionally witty and original biographer' Sunday Times, on Wild Girls.



'Souhami has a Midas touch with words. Her narrative sparkles' Nigel Nicolson, Sunday Telegraph, on Mrs Keppel and Her Daughter.



The extraordinary story of how a singular group of women in a pivotal time and place - Paris, Between the Wars - fostered the birth of the Modernist movement.



Sylvia Beach, Bryher, Natalie Barney, and Gertrude Stein. A trailblazing publisher; a patron of artists; a society hostess; a groundbreaking writer.



They were all women who loved women. They rejected the patriarchy and made lives of their own - forming a community around them in Paris.



Each of these four central women interacted with a myriad of others, some of the most influential, most entertaining, most shocking and most brilliant figures of the age. Diana Souhami weaves their stories into those of the four central women to create a vivid moving tapestry of life among the Modernists in pre-War Paris.

Diana Souhami was brought up in London and studied philosophy at Hull University. She has published biographies of Gluck, Gertrude Stein, Alice Keppel, Radclyffe Hall, Romaine Brooks and Edith Cavell. Her biography of Alexander Selkirk, Selkirk's Island, won the Whitbread Biography Award.
