Negrophilia: Avant-Garde Paris and Black Culture in the 1920s By Gregory Harrison Thames and Hudson (Interplay), 2000 Perhaps the best example of the literary world's response to Negrophilia, Petrine Archer-Straw's new book from Thames & Hudson, is reviewer Patrick Skene Catling saying the book was one of his three favourites for 2000. And earlier this year, the Times Literary Supplement called Negrophilia "a fascinating book on an important work." The book was launched in Jamaica at Redbones Blues Cafe in Kingston after successful reviews in London, Paris and New York. The Spectator of London called it "...an elegant, eloquent and profusely illustrated book." And Art Monthly said Negrophilia is "A grand, compelling and comprehensive narrative." more
