In Paris in the 1920s, Gerald and Sara Murphy were the emotional nexus of a charmed circle. Their friends and acquaintances included many of the major artistic figures of the 20th century, from Fitzgerald and Hemingway to Dorothy Parker and Picasso. Their Villa America on the Riviera was an enchanted Never-Neverland for their creative coterie and beloved children. However, the idyll they spun was not to last as they would lose both of their sons in the 1930s, and in the coming decades see most of their dear friends self-destruct. However, throughout their lives they provided all with a lesson of courage disguised as taste. In this biography, the author, who had access to private family papers, explores how the talented members of their generation triumphed, suffered and manifested their gifts.… (mer)

Gifted artist Gerald Murphy and his elegant wife, Sara, were icons of the most enchanting period of our time; handsome, talented, and wealthy expatriate Americans, they were at the very center of the literary scene in Paris in the 1920s. In Everybody Was So Young, Amanda Vaill brilliantly portrays both the times in which the Murphys lived and the fascinating friends who flocked around them. Whether summering with Picasso on the French Riviera or watching bullfights with Hemingway in Pamplona, Gerald and Sara inspired kindred creative spirits like Dorothy Parker, Cole Porter, and F. Scott Fitzgerald (Nicole and Dick Diver in Tender is the Night were modeled after the Murphys). The era of the Lost Generation has always fascinated me, and Vaill provides a delicious keyhole look at this period and the people who made it so colorful. ( )

I am trying to wrap my brain around just how special Sara and Gerald Murphy's reputation was between post World War I and pre World War II. Just the who's who name dropping when describing their inner circle alone is spectacular. Even at an early age, both Sara and Gerald hobnobbed with notables (Sara was warned not to wear a long scarf while flying with the Wright brothers and Gerald was schoolmates with Dorothy (Rothschild) Parker). The Murphys vacation spot of choice was a rocky beach in the south of France. It was easy to rub elbows with the big names for Paris was a hotbed for creativity during the 1920s. Artists, photographers, writers, poets and fashionistas alike flocked to the city center and soon made their way to the French Riviera. Gerald and Sara knew how to entertain all ages. Their children were treated to elaborate parties including a scavenger hunt that took them by sailboat across the Mediterranean. It was a charmed life...until it wasn't. Interspersed with the good times are episodes of tragedy - illnesses, death, Fitzgerald's drinking and subsequent estrangements from longtime friends. But, it was probably the tragic deaths of their two sons, Baoth and Patrick that were the most devastating and marked the end of an era for Sara and Gerald. ( )

This book sparked a "Lost Generation" reading jag. Started with Fitzgerald, led to Dos Passos, Hemingway and Gertrude Stein. Wonderful story about an artistic couple with the wealth to explore their eccentricities. I thought it was slated to become a movie, but haven't seen any progress. ( )

This is one of the best biographies I have read. Besides being well researched, it is elegantly and engagingly written. Heartbreaking at times, and at others enlightening. An example of its enlightening quality, who would have thought that Ernest Hemingway would have been such a devoted friend to Sara and Gerald Murphy's dying child. ( )
