" Red Riding Hood said, "I find your sexist remark offensive in the extreme, but I will ignore it because of your traditional status as an outcast from society, the stress of which has caused you to develop your own, entirely valid, worldview. Now, if you'll excuse me, I must be on my way.

MEMOIRS OF MONTPARNASSE, Glassco, John
20 Glassco, John MEMOIRS OF MONTPARNASSE
Toronto Oxford University Press 1973 0195402022 / 9780195402025 Softcover Good 
Moderate edge & corner wear, edge rubbing, light corner curling, a few creases. Interior pages are clean & unmarked, page edges are a little uneven. "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.
