Abstract:

Harry Crosby was the godson of J. P. Morgan, a friend of Ernest Hemingway, and member of the Lost Generation. Living in Paris in the twenties and directing the Black Sun Press, which published James Joyce among others, Crosby was at the center of the wild life, single-minded in his devotion to the creation and destruction inherent in art. Drugs, drink, sex, gambling, the deliberate derangement of the senses in the pursuit of transcendent revelation: these were Crosby's pastimes until 1929, when he shot his girlfriend, the recent bride of another man, and then himself.
