Read full description of the books:
This book does a great job of stripping away the myth and rumor of Ms. Baker and exploring the complicated century in which she lived. Provided with many great insights into the Parisian, American and international worlds that were the backdrop to Ms. Baker's life, this book manages to hold tight to the thread of her life without becoming too sentimental or monotonous.
I enjoyed this book mostly for the glimpse into the glittery Paris nightlife of the 20's and early 30's. The establishment of Paris as a haven for misused black Americans, especially entertainers and performers, helps to click in another piece of the ex-pat puzzle without becoming a "Casablanca" cliche.
This is a great book for those interested in dance, 20's and 30's glamour, the evolution of racial identity in the US and abroad as well as a look at a truly extraordinary talent.
