Memoirs of Montparnasse is a delicious book about being young, restless, reckless, and without cares. It is also the best and liveliest of the many chronicles of 1920s Paris and the exploits of the lost generation. In 1928, nineteen-year-old John Glassco escaped Montreal and his overbearing father for the wilder shores of Montparnasse. He remained there until his money ran out and his health collapsed, and he enjoyed every minute of his stay. Remarkable for their candor and humor, Glassco ' s memoirs have the daft logic of a wild but utterly absorbing adventure, a tale of desire set free that is only faintly shadowed by sadness at the inevitable passage of time.

John Glassco came from an established Montreal family, and lived the better part of his life near the village of Foster in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. He was a distinguished poet, novelist, essayist and translator - the Glassco prize for translation was named after him. His works include the widely acclaimed "Memoirs of Montparnasse" (1970), "A Point of Sky" (1964), "The Fatal Woman" (1974) and "Selected Poems" (1971) for which he won the Governor General's Award.

Louis Begley previous novels are Wartime Lies, The Man Who Was late, As max Saw It, About Schmidt, and Mistler's Exit. He lives in New York City.
