Nancy Peterson's slow, clearly enunciated narration illuminates the creative world of the late Belle Epoque in Paris. Subtitled "The Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, Renault, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, and Their Friends Through the Great War," this audiobook illuminates the detailed history of the intertwined lives and accomplishments of these famous personalities, beginning in the year 1900. Using uninflected English, Peterson fluidly slips French names and phrases into the narrative while barely differentiating personalities or dialogue. Her melodic voice draws listeners' attention to accomplishments, arguments, interactions, and intimate tidbits of the personal and professional lives of the well-known artists, authors, and scientists of this historical period in the City of Light.
