Meral explores the ways in which Paris constitutes an authentic literary subject and analyzes the differing responses to the city of such American writers as Henry James, Edith Wharton, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Pasos, and Henry Miller. Central is that idea that, although literary Paris reflects the changing fortunes of real Paris, the Paris depicted remains a uniquely American one because the heroes of the works are expatriate Americans, who apprehend the city through a foreign sensibility.
