Talk about Everybody Was So Young: Gerald and Sara Murphy : A Lost Generation Love Story

If you've read "Living Well Is the Best Revenge," by Calvin Tomkins, or F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is the Night," this biography of Gerald and Sara Murphy will give you a comprehensive view of the lives of Gerald and Sara Murphy, American expats who "invented" summer on the Riviera in the 1920s--with Picasso, Léger, Cole Porter, John Dos Passos, Hemingway, and, of course, Fitzgerald himself. There's Sara's exceedingly comfortable upbringing in East Hampton and her powerful allure to all who knew her, Gerald's worries about the "defect" in his character and his brief moment as an important modern painter, the tragedy of the loss of their two sons, the art world (painting, music, ballet) of postwar Europe, and lives lived consciously as works of art themselves. Wonderfully written, full of anecdote and character, highly recommended.

I decided to read this book upon completing Paula McClain's book, "The Paris Wife" which was a wonderfully written story of Hemingway's first wife, Hadley Richardson, and their life and times in Paris during the twenties. It was an era which brought together artists, writers, and poets, enveloped in decadence, luxury, and debauchery. Gerald and Sara Murphy were New York socialites who moved to Paris without artistic pursuit, but plenty of money to buy their way into the inner circles of the Americans in Paris who would shape our literary, artistic, and musical lives forever. I would have given this five stars, but the book slows down terribly during the second half. It's almost as though Vaill ran out of energy. There is lots of juicy gossip in this book which makes for incredibly, fascinating reading. If you're into that sort of stuff, then you may well give this book five stars. I found it immensely intimate and revealing with a good flow. There are times when it reads like a history book, but for the most part, it is a good story with lots of historical insights at the center of which are the Murphys, who befriended, supported, and held together, the Americans in Paris.

I'm so glad this was one of the books I decided to read after "THE PARIS WIFE." I knew there was a "Sara and Gerald Murphy, however, there really isn't anything written about them. I find this absolutely amazing, because they were the "POWER COUPLE " of their time. (The Lost Generation,) as Gertrude Stein so aptly put it. They were the influences with Hemingway, Picasso, the Fitzgeralds, people looked towards them as friends, confidents, and while their life was stuff that "dreams were made of, there was unimaginable tragedy" in their lives, yet they kept going on where others might have fallen. EXCELLENT BUT LONG READ, (with photos, well documented.)

Didn't expect to like this book. Over privileged couples from the twenties have a very limited appeal for me. The writer moves the reader through the back story rather quickly with lots of interesting tidbits. It was easy to become involved. It does flesh out the group of people that lived in artistic bliss during that time period.

On the face, the story is familiar. The Murphy’s are advantaged and come from wealthy families. They are Ivy League educated. The story is a who’s - who of the 1920’s. Cole Porter, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Vanderbilt, Crosby, and so many more that there would be no space. In some cases they are intimately close friend s and others are acquaintances. They summer in England and France and the description of the parties would raise the hair on one’s neck. The story of their life is exceptionally written and flows well. I was captured from the beginning and it’s hard to put this book down. This is a fantastic look at the iconic and a closer view of what life was really like in the 1920’s for the rich and famous.

An engaging and well-researched memoire describing the lives of two very interesting people who were both patrons of the arts during the 20th century and artists themselves. I'm always leery when biographers "get inside" the head of their subjects and draw conclusions or tell you what the person's motivations were...but Amanda Vaill had clearly spent so much time gettting to know Gerald, Sara, and the others of her time that I ended up trusting her judgement and enjoying her insights. In particular, I found the depiction of Hemmingway and Fitzgerald--both hightly flawed, both retaiing the Murphy's unfaltering friendship to the end--illuminating and interesting. This book is both a fabulous period resource and a gripping memoir. Highly recommended.

In the early part of the 20th century, life was changing a quick clip that created a divide between the young and the older generation. Gerald and Sara Murphy were in the heart of this. An ordinary couple with financial means to seek out a different life than was expected of them, they found themselves in the swirling eddies of a creative world of American ex-pats in Europe. Their lives seemed so charmed - money, beautiful children, educated, talented (Gerald a painter of some renown) - but there were dark shadows in their lives. Two of their children died within a short time of each other. Their friends have their own problems they are trying to drag the into - the Fitzgeralds escalating marital discord compounded with alcoholism and mental illness and Hemingway's flagrant infidelities - which creep into their existence. It's an interesting insight into a life well lived.
This book surprised me. Truthfully, I didn't expect to like it that much but I was in the mood for Paris in that period of time so I took a chance. It's outstanding. A couple who truly were the hub of the action and knew everyone. They were lovely, generous and fascinating people. Fitzgerald, Hemingway…all the greats are included but Gerald and Sara Murphy are incredibly interesting and it's all about their lives, the people they knew and about art. High recommend to anyone interested in what was happening in Paris during that spectacular time.
