A Moveable Feast


Item Details

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

Hemmingway came across as a naive man to me, focused mainly on himself. Some of the descriptions of Paris are evocative. But I found "A Paris Wife", in Hatley's voice, to be much more interesting.

Hem sharing the anecdote about Fitzgerald's private parts is just so over the top competitive, pathetic,infantile. The Great Gatsy is better than anything he ever wrote so I guess he had to get even. Tavernier-Courbin's book is a good antidote. She doesn't pull any punches.

a wonderful complement to the movie "Midnight in Paris" the picture of how Hem wrote is enlightening

You can get some further details under the "Review" tab. This version includes a bunch of sections that Hemingway decided to leave out of the original book as well as a number of alternative versions of sections that were included. Interesting in an academic way, but I didn't find it added to my appreciation of the book. While many people find this book to be largely gossip (and a lot of nasty gossip) about people who have been dead for a long time, it was a personal touchstone for me as a teenager, and I still love it (in either version).
