April 19 2013 French Culture Newsletter


Bonjour Mes Amis,

We're only one season away from summer. Here is how the Fitzgerald family liked to spend theirs...

Fitzgeraldien Summers in the South of France
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel Tender is the Night is inspired by the couple that made summering in Juan les Pins fashionable in the 1920’s. Learn about the Art Deco villa they possessed, their favorite places to sunbathe and the trend of wearing pyjamas to the beach.

While I much prefer the Great Gatsby to Tender is the Night, the latter let me time travel back 100 years in this region of France where I'm living.

For more images from the 1920's visit this site, a treasure trove of old photographs...

Take care,
