Twilight of the Belle Époque by Mary McAuliffe

This book is a delight for lovers of the Edwardian age. Full of tales about Proust, Matisse, Picasso and other luminaries of the age, it is a fascinating look at Belle Époque Paris. I also liked learning about lesser-known characters, such as Madame Cheruit.

The only flaw was that there is just so much information to absorb. The book is too much like a textbook at times.
