Memoirs of Montparnasse (New York Review Books Classics)
Memoirs of Montparnasse is a delicious book about being young, restless, reckless, and without cares. It is also the best and liveliest of the many chronicles of 1920s Paris and the exploits of the lost generation. In 1928, nineteen-year-old John Glassco escaped Montreal and his overbearing father for the wilder shores of Montparnasse. He remained there until his money ran out and his health collapsed, and he enjoyed every minute of his stay. Remarkable for their candor and humor, Glassco’s memoirs have the daft logic of a wild but utterly absorbing adventure, a tale of desire set free that is only faintly shadowed by sadness at the inevitable passage of time.

The night view from the top of the Tour Maine-Montparnasse (Maine-Montparnasse Tower), commonly known as the Tour Montparnasse. Constructed from 1969 to 1972, this was the tallest building in Europe when finished, standing at 231 metres / 758 feet. However, it has since been surpassed by others and is now only the ninth tallest in the European Union. The tower has been often criticised as being completely out of place amid Paris' much squatter urban architecture, and two years after it was built, further skyscrapers in the centre of the city were banned. In 2008, it was voted the second ugliest building in the world, and it is often said that the view from the top is the most beautiful in Paris, since it is the only place from which one cannot see the tower itself! That view here, looking north west, includes the Eiffel Tower, with the Ecole Militaire in front, and the high-rise offices of La Defense behind. Also visible are the Arc de Triomphe and the Hotel des Invalides. Taken in Paris, France on September 29, 2010.
