A Moveable Feast

Ernest Hemingway

4631

Paris in the 1920s was a magical time for Hemingway. He and his first wife Hadley lived very frugally, but his lack of cash was more than compensated for by the richness of the people who moved through his life: Sylvia Beach, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda, were just some of the people Hemingway interacted with.

This classic made Paris seem the romantic ideal for starving artists. It is a nostalgic look back at a time gone forever, but is not sentimental. A lovely look at at lovely time in an artist’s live.
