Summary: American painter Shirley Goldfarb came to Paris from New York in 1954 and lived a fascinating life there, frequenting its brasseries and famous left bank cafés. Here she wrote her diaries about matters of the soul and meetings with famous figures such as Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, and Yves Saint Laurent. From the memories of her husband, Gregory Masurovsky, from her diaries, and from impressions left with waiters, Kaye Mortley has constructed an absorbing memoir of this mythic figure of the Parisian artistic world. With Peggy Frankston. Written and produced by Kaye Mortley.
