It’s Paris, 1929. Hemingway, Dali, Man Ray, and the ever-thirsty Kiki of Montparnasse sit around a table on the Dome Cafe terrace, discussing a project for the enigmatic and vastly wealthy Comte de Charmentier. The Count wants a Danse Macabre for his walls, showing Death’s dance with all of humanity: kings and jazz musicians, Flappers and avant-garde artists, all dance their way to becoming the bones of Paris.
The Conversation is based on the Laurie R. King novel The Bones of Paris, coming September 2013.
Want to see the front of Man Ray’s studio? Or Pip Crosby’s apartment building? Want to follow Stuyvesant’s walk from Shakespeare & Co to his seedy hotel? See the view as he muses over the Seine from the Île de la Cité, or drinks coffee on the Rotonde terrace?
