520    In June 1947, fresh out of college and long before he 
       would win the Pulitzer Prize and become known as one of 
       America's finest historians, Stanley Karnow boarded a 
       freighter bound for France, planning to stay for the 
       summer. He stayed for ten years, first as a student and 
       later as a correspondent for Time magazine. By the time he
       left, Karnow knew Paris so intimately that his French 
       colleagues dubbed him "le plus parisien des Américains"-
       the most Parisian American. Now, Karnow returns to the 
       France of his youth, perceptively and wittily illuminating
       a time and place like no other. Karnow came to France at a
       time when the French were striving to return to the life 
       they had enjoyed before the devastation of World War II. 
       Yet even during food shortages, political upheavals, and 
       the struggle to come to terms with a world in which France
       was no longer the mighty power it had been, Paris remained
       a city of style, passion, and romance. Paris in the 
       Fifties transports us to Latin Quarter cafés and basement 
       jazz clubs, unheated apartments and glorious ballrooms. We
       meet such prominent political figures as Charles de Gaulle
       and Pierre Mendès-France, as well as Communist hacks and 
       the demagogic tax rebel Pierre Poujade. We get to know 
       illustrious intellectuals-such as Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone
       de Beauvoir, Albert Camus, and André Malraux-and visit the
       glittering salons where aristocrats mingled with novelists,
       poets, critics, artists, composers, playwrights, and 
       actors. Karnow takes us to marathon murder trials, 
       accompanies a group of tipsy wine connoisseurs on a tour 
       of the Beaujolais vineyards, and recalls the famous 
       automobile race at Le Mans when a catastrophic accident 
       killed eighty-three spectators. Back in Paris, Karnow hung
       out with visiting celebrities like Ernest Hemingway, Orson
       Welles, and Audrey Hepburn, and we meet them too. A 
       veteran reporter and historian, Karnow has written a vivid,
       delightful history of a charmed decade in the greatest 
       city in the world.
