Paris: The Luminous Years Reading Challenge

The Paris: The Luminous Years Reading Challenge immediately grabbed me because it's an era I adore featuring authors and other artists I slavishly worship.  The challenge is a mix of fiction and non-fiction which adds an additional challenge that I'm excited about! I'm going for the six book (3 fiction, 3 non-fiction) level.

Some ideas that immediately come to mind:

The Book of Repulsive Women by Djuna Barnes (or her Collected Poems, I'm undecided)
Helen in Egypt by H.D.
Americans in Paris: A Literary Anthology by Adam Gopnik
Music's Modern Muse: A Life of Winnaretta Singer, Princesse de Polignac by Sylvia Kahan
The Lost Lunar Baedeker by Mina Loy
Good Morning, Midnight by Jean Rhys
Wild Heart: A Life: Natalie Clifford Barney and the Decadence of Literary Paris by Suzanne Rodriguez
