Facsimile Edition
Harold J. Salemson, Editor
Introduction by Mark S. Morrisson and Jack Selzer

A facsimile edition of a "little magazine" that published James T. Farrell, Zona Gale, Paul Bowles, André Spire, Countee Cullen, and Jean Cocteau.

This facsimile edition makes available in one volume all eight issues of Tambour, a historically important "little magazine" published in Paris in 1929 and 1930 that featured an exciting mix of writing by European and American modernists.

"Tambour strongly conveys the interactive, experimental literary world of the 1920s. It mixes genres and languages. Countee Cullen is across the page from Blaise Cendrars; criticism and the manifesto coexist with fiction and poetry."—Cary Nelson, author of Repression and Recovery
