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 an alternate Paperback edition.
Anyone who has an interest in the writers of this period should read this book.
I enjoyed the photographs that were included in this edition as well as the examples of Hemingway's revisions that completed the book.
Surrounded by such greats as Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hemingway shone as a young writer moving up.
Becoming acquainted with Hemingway's formative writing career and circle of friends was enlightening.Published 1 day ago by Joseph A. Spadaro
