The author was the Executive Curator of the Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas who over the course of decades built the "finest collection of research materials on modern French literature and the arts anywhere outside of Paris." In this memoir, Lake shares his story of seeking out and acquiring unpublished manuscripts, and in so doing he documents unknown or little-known facts about the lives and works of luminaries like Matisse, Ravel, Gertrude Stein, Jean Cocteau, Valery, Eluard, Satie, Celine and others. He also shares his dealings with French booksellers in a variety of dances in his search for the uncommon.
