In the years between the world wars, the surrealists found ever more innovative ways of exploring the interior life, and asking new questions about how to define art. Re-creating the cafés and galleries of Montparnasse that were the cultural hub for the movement, Sue Roe takes us to Gertrude Stein in her box seat at the opening of The Rite of Spring; with Marcel Duchamp as he installs Fountain, still the world's most famous urinal; to a Jean Cocteau theatrical with Pablo Picasso and Coco Chanel; with poet and chief theorist André Breton at a meeting with Sigmund Freud; and with Man Ray as he romances Kiki de Montparnasse.
