‘If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.’ – Hemingway to a friend, 1950.
A bright copy of Hemingway’s 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 epitomised.
Illustrated with eight black and white photographs.
