This was the beginning of my love of the 1920s and 30s expatriate life and of the idea of hospitality. In fact, because of this book, my college art portfolio was based on the theme of hospitality. Gerald was a talented artist in his own right and it's a pity he's not more famous. Sara was a flame that drew writers and artists of that period like moths. Written by their daughter, it reads like an homage. I'm interesed in other biographies of Sara and Gerald and it looks like there are some now.
