Praise

 ”Roe is an elegant writer . . . [T]his entertaining, fast-paced history will thrill Francophones and art historians alike.”—Publishers Weekly

“She vividly charts the birth of surrealism . . . a tale rich in absurdity and outlandish characters, from Cocteau and Max Ernst to Dalí and Picasso”—Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times (U.K.)
 
“Highly colourful . . . they’re all here, the big names of the time – behaving badly, and, at times, quite madly too.”—Observer (U.K.)
 
“Brings together some of the chief protagonists in one of the 20th century’s most inventive art movements. A vivid read”—Radio Times (U.K.)

“Roe is a talented writer, fascinated by la vie Boheme . . . She can find phrases that perfectly capture the feeling of a neighborhood”—John Carey, Sunday Times (U.K.)
“I loved Roe’s In Montmartre and [In Montparnasse]—a colorful, gossipy account of the birth of Surrealism . . . is equally beguiling.” —The Bookseller, Editor’s Choice (U.K.)

“Sue Roe describes with plenty of colour how surrealism was born and developed in Montparnasse . . . Roe marshals [the figures behind dada and surrealism] with great finesse”The Times (U.K.)
