Inhaltsangabe: For the magazine s centenary celebration, an anthology of pieces from the early golden age of "Vanity Fair"
In honor of the 100th anniversary of "Vanity Fair" magazine, B"ohemians, Bootleggers, Flappers, and Swells"celebrates the publication s astonishing early catalogue of writers, with works by Dorothy Parker, Noel Coward, P. G. Wodehouse, Jean Cocteau, Colette, Gertrude Stein, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Sherwood Anderson, Robert Benchley, Langston Hughes and many others. "Vanity Fair "editor Graydon Carter introduces these fabulous pieces written between 1913 and 1936, when the magazine published a murderers row of the world s leading literary lights.

"Bohemians, Bootleggers, Flappers, and Swells" features great writers on great topics, including F. Scott Fitzgerald on what a magazine should be, Clarence Darrow on equality, D. H. Lawrence on women, e.e. cummings on Calvin Coolidge, John Maynard Keynes on the collapse in money value, Thomas Mann on how films move the human heart, Alexander Woollcott on Harpo Marx, Carl Sandburg on Charlie Chaplin, Djuna Barnes on James Joyce, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., on Joan Crawford, and Dorothy Parker on a host of topics ranging from why she hates actresses to why she hasn t married.


These essays reflect the rich period of their creation while simultaneously addressing topics that would be recognizable in the magazine today, such as how women should navigate work and home life; our destructive fascination with the entertainment industry and with professional sports; the collapse of public faith in the financial industry; and, as Aldous Huxley asks herein, What, Exactly, Is Modern?
Offering readers an inebriating swig from that great cocktail shaker of the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, the age of Gatsby, "Bohemians, Bootleggers, Flappers, and Swells" showcases unforgettable writers in search of how to live well in a changing era."

"Library Journal: "
"Reading this compilation of writings published in Vanity Fair from the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s is like sampling a box of chocolates on Valentine's Day: a delicious confection of satire, poetry, biographical sketches, humorous pieces, and thought-provoking commentary."
"Booklist"
"These delightful period pieces reflecting the social mores of their time hold up in their innovation, style, and concern about modern life nearly a century later."



"Buffalo News"
"You'll find some of the best poetry and prose of Vanity Fair's first incarnation in this wildly stellar anthology of essays, interviews, poems, journalism and whatnot (lots of whatnot) from the "Bible of the Smart Set" 1913-1926."

"As these few sips of "Bohemians, Bootleggers, Flappers and Swells" -- an "inebriating swig from that great cocktail shaker of the Roaring Twenties, the Jazz Age, and the age of Gatsby" -- suggest, the book makes for an excellent nightcap."
