Jazz-age Paris was the center of the artistic and literary world, and the center of the center was Gertrude Stein’ s salon, where the famous and aspiring creative talents gathered to gawk at Stein’ s Picassos and vie for status. Young Midwesterner Ida Caine arrives in Paris with her husband Teddy, a would-be Hemingway who thinks he can adventure first and write later. When Teddy falls in with the Stein set, he brings Ida to the salon, where she is shunted into a corner with the wives of famous men. She burns with resentment and wonders if she can ever develop into a real artist herself. A few days later, Gertrude Stein’ s partner Alice B. Toklas vanishes.
Stein calls upon Teddy to investigate. Soon after, he vanishes. Forced to seek out her missing husband, Ida follows his trail through a milieu including strange Surrealist rituals, Tarot card readings, and the catacombs beneath the city. She falls in with a young American poet, T.S. Eliot. An unlikely passion grows while they seek answers to the shocking disappearances.

About the Author

Robert Archambeau possesses the world’s least interesting international identity: born in Rhode Island and raised in Canada, he spent summers in Maine or at his father’s art studio in the Canadian wilderness. He always felt he would end up making art, or at least movies, but his fate was grimmer still. He fell in with a group of poets and began writing poetry, scholarly studies of literature, and art criticism.
