As part of Sian’s Spike Island residency, she has published an eBook of biographical essays about the women of 1920s Paris.
It’s called …and Paris is my hometown
which is a Gertrude Stein quote.
The majority of the essays were published by The Heroine Collective throughout 2016 and Sian is very grateful to their lovely editor Kate Kerrow for contributing the Foreword to the collection. There are some extra exciting tidbits in the anthology though so it’s worth your time!
…and Paris is my hometown includes essays celebrating the life and work of Gertrude Stein, Colette, Sylvia Beach, Josephine Baker, Kiki de Montparnasse and many, many more.
