    New York: Grove Press, (1992) dj. Hardcover first edition - A look at the "second wave" of expatriate American writers who took up residence in Paris between 1944-1960, "some seeking the exciting ambiance of art and the bohemian life that Paris has offered earlier generations, some escaping from racist and materialistic aspects of the United States." Among these writers were Richard Wright, James Baldwin, James Jones, William Styron, Chester Himes, George Plimpton, John Ashbery, Harry Matthews, Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Alexander Trocchi, Gregory Corso, Brion Gysin, and William S. Burroughs. This book is an anecdotal account of the friendships and associations the writers formed, the cross-cultural influences they experienced, what they discovered, and what they brought back. Photographs, notes, selected bibliography, index. x,345 pp. ISBN: 0-802113710.
