    Paris in the 1920s: It is a city of intoxicating ambition, passion, art, and discontent, where louche jazz venues like the Chameleon Club draw expats, artists, libertines, and parvenus looking to indulge their true selves. It is at the Chameleon where the striking Lou Villars, an extraordinary athlete and scandalous cross-dressing lesbian, finds refuge among the club's loyal denizens, including the rising photographer Gabor Tsenyi, the socialite and art patron Baroness Lily de Rossignol, and the caustic American writer Lionel Maine.

    Melinda says: "A Spectrum of Acceptable Truths"
    "Good readers except Lionel"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to others, but I wouldn't recommend that the person who performed Lionel's part read other books. His reading was unnatural and jarring. In fact, the character Lionel added little to the story, and that made listening to his part worse. Past that, the other performers were good and the story is fascinating.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Someone else should read Lionel. The performance was unnatural and made me wish the character wasn't in the book. In fact, I'm not sure why he needed to be in the book anyway.
