The Lost Generation

On Monday I posted about the movie Midnight in Paris [DVD MID].

In the movie Owen Wilson's character keeps meeting up with members of the "Lost Generation"--American and British writers and artists who took up residence in France in the 1920s. These people included Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dali, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, etc.

Many biographies and commentaries have been written on the "Lost Generation," but, these people also seem to hold a fascination for novelists who have imagined incidents in the lives of the "Lost Generation":

The Hemingway Project is a website devoted to "collecting stories about the enduring influence of Ernest Hemingway." If you wish to learn more about the "Lost Generation," this site is worth a visit.
