Abstract:

"From Paris's famous opera house to its gossip-rich salons, Kiss Me Again, Paris celebrates youth at the end of the 1970s, when women were in fashion and every woman, gay or straight, fell in love with women. Author Renate Stendhal ekes out a living as a cultural journalist in Europe's most cultured city. She walks Paris at night dressed as a boy, has friends and lovers among artists and writers, and falls under the spell of the mercurial actress Claude, who has all of Paris talking. At the same time, she finds herself in the crosshairs of an alluring stranger who seems to appear everywhere and nowhere at once. There are mysteries with and without clues. Is sexual obsession a way to avoid the risk of love? Filled with sensuality, style, romance, and suspense, Stendhal plays with the concept of memoir as a genre and transports the reader to another time and place."--

Along with the photographs to give you a deeper look into her world, the overall reflection and sensation is that while Paris is so iconic, you never...

Women Leading the Way

by nbogle (WorldCat user published 2019-06-15) Excellent Permalink

Full disclosure. I'm a man, and I found this book incredibly interesting. I love Paris which was why I initially picked up the book. At first I thought, young lesbian women trying to find themselves wouldn't be for me, but I was wrong. Paris in the 1970's gave women permission--not that they needed...
