Confessions of Another Young Man
Imbs, Bravig. Confessions of Another Young Man. First Edition. 1936. Book and dust jacket are both in very good minus condition—the book shows well, but the flaps were once glued to the boards, leaving tears and abrasions. Jacket shows fraying and small tears. The book has a few date stamps to the rear flyleaf.
The title of this memoir of an American expatriate in Paris is falsely modest. The author’s charm and good looks assured he was not just any young man. Though he arrived in France penniless, he soon found his way into the best salons. He became the favorite of Gertrude Stein and much of this book concerns his experiences with her. Others in his circle included James Joyce, Elliot Paul, and Ernest Hemingway. This book is uncommon, even more so in its dust jacket.
"His poverty was abject, but his manners were of a magnificence."
