DJuna Barnes in Midnight in Paris
Peggy Bacon, Djuna Barnes, about 1940
The Estate of Peggy Bacon
Peggy Bacon would have been so pleased to see her pal Djuna Barnes featured in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris. Now showing, the film opened May 11 in Cannes, of course. Barnes (1892-1982), the American modernist writer, was part of Bacon's Greenwich Village crowd, and figures in Bacon's Off with Their Heads, published 1934.
