Post-adolescence : a selection of short fiction by Robert McAlmon( Book )

10 editions published between 1920 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Post-Adolescence, the short novel that leads off the collection, will be of special interest to aficionados of the glory days of American bohemianism for its portraits of William Carlos Williams and his wife, Florence, Mardsen Hartley, Mina Loy, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Marianne Moore, Alfred Kreymbourg, and Kenneth Burke. This unsparingly realistic diary of pre-1920 Greenwich Village has never before been published in the United States. But equally exciting are McAlmon's matter-of-fact evocations of encouters with sex, violence, and death in such stories as The Fast Girl, Green Grow the Grasses, The Jack Rabbit Drive, and A Boy's Discovery, as well as A Vacation's Job and Mexican Interval, which describe the author's sojourns in Mexico and the West before he went to seek his literary fortune
The nightinghouls of Paris by Robert McAlmon( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nightinghouls of Paris is a thinly fictionalized memoir of the darker side of expatriate life in Paris. Beginning in 1928, the story follows the changes undergone by Canadian youths John Glassco and his friend Graeme Taylor during their (mis)adventures in Paris while trying to become writers. There they meet Robert McAlmon, who guides them through the city's cafes, bistros, and nightclubs, where they find writers and artists including Kay Boyle (with whom Glassco has a fling), Bill Bird, Djuna Barnes, Claude McKay, Hilaire Hiler, Peggy Guggenheim, and Ernest Hemingway." "Fleeing France in late 1940, Robert McAlmon lost his notebook manuscripts and drafted The Nightinghouls of Paris from memory. Until now, it has existed solely as a typescript held by Yale University. Unlike most memoirs of American expatriates in the 1920s, The Nightinghouls of Paris centers not only on writers, but also encompasses the racial, national, and social melange they encountered in everyday life."--Jacket

""Lesbianism, its flories and sorows, is the subject and quest of this marvelously erverse sentimental journey by Nightwood's author ... A striking lesbian mainfesto and a deft parody." Library Journal Blending fiction, myth, and revisionary parody and accompanied by the author's delightful illustrations, Ladies Almanac is also a brilliant modernist composition and arguably the most audacious lesbian text of its time. While the book pokes fun at the wealthy expatriates who were Barnes' literary contemporaries and remains controversial today, it seems to have delighted its cast of characters
