HEMINGWAY'S PARIS:
WRITERS and BOOKS:
Sylvia Beach

Sylvia Beach was co-owner of the English-language Shakespeare and Company, a bookstore and lending library which became a hub of activity and contact for English-speaking writers and artists in Paris.

James Joyce's Ulysses was first published by Shakespeare and Co., and books like Lady Chatterley's Lover, banned in England and the U.S., were often available at the bookstore/library.
