"The Very Rich Hours of Adrienne Monnier: An Intimate Portrait of the Literary and Artistic Life in Paris Between the Wars," translated and with an introduction by Richard McDougall, is a personal chronicle of the influential French figure Adrienne Monnier. Monnier’s bookstore, La Maison des Amis des Livres, was an intersection for artists and writers in 1920’s Paris. These essays, reviews, and personal journal entries are densely populated with Monnier’s relationships to the canon’s cultural icons––lunching with T.S. Eliot, befriending James Joyce, etc. Collated together, the collection reflects Monnier’s mutable, significant connection to the art, literature, and social scene of that inspired period in history.
