Hadley Richardson and Ernest Hemingway were the golden couple of Paris in the twenties, the center of an expatriate community boasting the likes of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, and James and Nora Joyce. In this haunting account of the young Hemingways, Gioia Diliberto explores their passionate courtship, their family life in Paris with baby Bumby, and their thrilling, adventurous relationship—a literary love story scarred by Hadley’s loss of the only copy of Hemingway’s first novel and ultimately destroyed by a devastating ménage à trois on the French Riviera.
Compelling, illuminating, poignant, and deeply insightful, Paris Without End provides a rare, intimate glimpse of the writer who so fully captured the American imagination and the remarkable woman who inspired his passion and his art—the only woman Hemingway never stopped loving.
I have only seen movies based on Hemmingway novels but never read anything. I usually go for non-fiction so I thought this book would be a good intro into his life and work. Read morePublished 1 month ago by casanne

I tried, but I can't get with the hyperbole and prejudice of the author, who seems a hard-core traditionalist and actually (perhaps inevitably) rather the anti-feminist. Read morePublished 2 months ago by vidabo
