Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932

Book: Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932

Author: Francine Prose

Reviewer: Jody Herring, Graduate – English (American Literature), NC State

This book came out of Prose’s love of the work of Hungarian photographer Brassai and showcases her incomparable ability to blend fact and fiction. From start to finish (what a beautiful, postmodern ending), it is one of the most beautiful books I’ve had the pleasure of reading in many years. If you are interested in photography, gay/lesbian cultures, sports cultures, or Holocaust literature certainly add this beautiful book to your list.
