Description: Living Well Is the Best Revenge tells the story of Gerald and Sara Murphy and their charmed circle in Europe in the twenties. Gerald Murphy was a painter who witnessed the flowering of the modern art movement; his glamorous wife, Sara, was the confidante of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who used the couple as models for Dick and Nicole Diver in Tender Is the Night. Calvin Tomkins marvelously re-creates the heady atmosphere of a magical era when the Murphys were surrounded at the playgrounds of the Riviera by some of the creative geniuses of the century, among them Picasso, Fitzgerald, Hemingway, John dos Passos, Cole Porter, and Gertrude Stein.

Living Well Is the Best Revenge was a New York Times bestseller on its first publication. Louis Auchincloss described it as "a beautiful and evocative memoir"; The Boston Globe said: "A lovely, lovely work of literature...you must read it, you simply must".

Calvin Tomkins has written a new Introduction for the Modern Library. The sixty-seven photographs in the original book have been faithfully replicated for this elegant new edition.
