Hemingway beautifully captures the fragile magic of a special time and place, and he manages to be nostalgic without hitting any false notes of sentimentality. "This is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy," he concludes. Originally published in 1964, three years after his suicide, A Moveable Feast was the first of his posthumous books and remains the best. --David Laskin --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Surrounded by such greats as Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway shone as a young writer moving up.
The picture he paints of Paris gives you a vivid depiction of the time and people living their, makes it a fascinating reading experience.
I enjoyed the photographs that were included in this edition as well as the examples of Hemingway's revisions that completed the book.
