Softcover. 416 pages. 21 x 14 cm
When Sylvia Beach, a young American book lover, opens Shakespeare and Company on a quiet street in 1919 Paris, she has no idea that she will change the course of literature. Shakespeare and Company is much more than a bookshop. Hemingway and many of the writers of the Lost Generation consider it their second home. It is also where some of the most important literary friendships of the 20th century were forged, such as James Joyce's with Sylvia herself. When Joyce's controversial novel Ulysses is banned, Beach decides to publish it under the protection of Shakespeare and Company. But the success and fame that come with publishing the most controversial and influential novel of the century comes at a high cost: rivalry from other publishers who want Joyce for themselves. Their dearest relationships are put to the test as Paris descends into the Great Depression. Faced with a major personal and financial crisis, Sylvia must decide what Shakespeare and Company means to her. With The Bookseller of Paris Kerri Maher has succeeded in constructing an unparalleled fresco of a bookshop, a city and an era essential to understanding where we have come from and where we are going.
