Kiki's Memoirs is a 1929 autobiography by Alice Prin (October 2, 1901 - April 29, 1953), known as Kiki de Montparnasse; a model, artist, and actress working in Montparnasse, Paris in the first half of the twentieth century.
Translated from the French by Samuel Putnam, her memoirs are a lively account of the bohemian lifestyle typical among the artists in Paris during the 1920s, with an introduction provided by Ernest Hemingway and Tsuguharu Foujita. The memoirs were first published in English in 1930, but due to their sometimes explicit content, were banned in the United States until the 1970s. A new edition, edited by Billy Klüver and Julie Martin, was released in 1996.
