I was born in San Francisco, California. I have in consequence always preferred living in a temperate climate but it is difficult, on the continent of Europe or even in America, to find a temperate climate and live in it. My mother’s father was a pioneer, he came to California in ‘49, he married my grandmother who was very fond of music. She was a pupil of Clara Schumann’s father. My mother was a quiet charming woman named Emilie.
A splendid book where we can find some historical artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Braque as well as some famous writers, Ernest Hemingway among others.
The book is written in a prose mode which makes the reading flows quite well. The description of how the intellectuals faced the World War I is also described by the author.
