Format: Paperback
Hemingway fans will adore this book, but for anyone interested in literary and artistic Paris, this exceptional guidebook will also lead you to the haunts of such luminaries as James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, e. e. cummings, Sylvia Beach, Gertrude Stein and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Author Fitch includes a helpful introduction to Paris, followed by an insightful introduction to Hemingway's Paris. Seven self-guided tours contain detailed commentaries for each stop along the route. The best of the itineraries take you along the Seine, through the Latin Quarter and around the Luxemburg gardens, which are the most pleasant places to walk in Paris anyway. Even though it's easy to get lost in the maze of short and angled streets of Paris, clear, good-sized maps throughout the book keep you oriented. Nearly fifty black-and-white photographs, many of them historic, evoke the ambience of Paris in the 1920s. Photos include Sylvia Beach in her Shakespeare and Company bookstore; Scott, Zelda and Scottie Fitzgerald celebrating Christmas in their apartment on rue de Tilsitt; a wicked cartoon of James Joyce drawn by Fitzgerald in 1928; and, of course, Hemingway. A detailed index helps you find information about places and people.
After loosely following Tour Two through the Saint Germain neighborhood, my daughter Anne and I had morning coffee and pastries at the Cafe de Flore, Anne scribbling away in her journal. When I teasingly asked the waiter how Hemingway, and later the Existentialist writers who haunted the Cafe de Flore in the 40s and 50s, managed to get any writing done on the tiny, round tables barely large enough to hold a plate, he teased me back by pushing two of the tables together so I had plenty of room to pen my immortal postcards.

After two important introductory chapters, the seven walks take the reader or tourist to every Hemingway (and Fitzgerald) site in Paris. These walks were tried/previewed by many classes of students at the American University of Paris. Although a few details date the book, it holds up today! The walks, by the way, include wonderful quotations from many of Hemingway's novels, short stories, and his memoir of Paris. Buy the book and come to Paris!!

I took this book to Paris and went to every single place mentioned. It was easy to use and fun to read and made me love Paris (and Hemingway) even more.

I love doing some of these walks very late at night or during the wee hours. Actually going to Cafe de Flore or other cafes that are identified as literary hot spots is prohibitively expensive, but there is something special about looking at the shadows and trees outside these places and thinking that Hemingway and James Joyce sat under some of these trees. Now it's all about money and I suspect writers have moved on to cheaper environs.

Interesting book about Hemingway's haunts in the Paris of the 1920's. Should be a very useful guide to literary walks in the City of Light.

When I traveled in the early 70's I tried to go to the places where famous writers and people in history flourished. This book does an excellent job of summarizing and providing historical tidbits. Hemingway was my favorite so this was a great source. One of my favorites was Shakespeare and Company and the writer gives a nice history of this notable bookstore. I wish I would have written it years ago.

Reading this book is a great way to follow Hemingway around without getting drunk. Fitch knows every inch of both the Left and Right Bank when it comes to Hemingway's hangouts. You can also keep this on your lap and follow Jake Barnes when he's walking around Paris in the first part of "The Sun Also Rises."
