Praise for When Paris Was a Woman

Andrea Weiss has told the fascinating, less well known story of the remarkable women artists and writers who made pre-war Paris the cultural capital of the world--riveting! --Edmund White

[In] Andrea Weiss' enjoyable book... the bohemian world of Paris during the 1920s is more interestingly and accurately conceived as a community of women...She draws on a wealth of research [and] has a professional eye for what a photographic portrait is.--The Times Literary Supplement

Energetic, discerning feminist scholars continue to introduce us to women of consequence, beckoning them out of the shadows onto the center stage. Andrea Weiss, with the eye of a documentary filmmaker, trains her camera on 28 women of the Left Bank, her dramatis personae.--Washington Post Book World
