Now appearing in English translation for the first time, these are the bold and sassy memoirs of the model who became the reigning queen of 1920s Paris - featuring many unpublished Man Ray photographs. A love child, she was born in Burgundy in 1901 and christened Alice Prin. Raised by her grandmother in dire poverty, she made meals of vegetables thieved from neighbors' gardens and snails lured from hiding by summer showers.

Talk about Kiki's Memoirs


Nidora
Being a veritable Kiki virgin before I read this book, I found Kiki's Memoirs more than helpful in showing the atmosphere of 1920's Paris. I did, however, agree with Ernest Hemingway's sentiments from his introdution-it is impossible to translate Kiki's words very well. It seems like Samuel Putnam was unable to get more than four sentences out without putting in an exclamation mark. This breaks the narrative up considerably. I would have given this book three stars, but I loved the Man Ray photos in it. The real strength of this book lies in the artwork.

This is Kiki in Kiki's own voice, no one could say it better.This is a wonderful book for those who love Bohemian Paris, and even those who don't.

KIKI WAS A LEGEND IN HER OWN TIME AND CONTINUES TO FASCINATE. IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE PERIOD. ANOTHER BOOK OF THE PERIOD IS: "KIKI'S PARIS, ARTISTS AND LOVERS 1900-1930"

This is the book I wanted. Her life amongst artists in Paris in the 20's.
