Pride Month: Day Twenty Nine! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

This wonderful book features the story of Sylvia Beach and the publication of Ulysses! And while I obviously loved reading about James Joyce and Ulysses, I also really loved how the author took a lot of time to craft a beautiful story about the love between Sylvia and Adrienne Monnier, which is an aspect of her life that I think gets overlooked often!

I bought this several years ago, but haven‘t gotten around to reading it yet. Sounds interesting and I‘ve heard good things about Laing‘s writing.

This was an interesting read about the birth of the Shakespeare and Company Book Store in Paris and the role that its owner Sylvia Beach played in publishing James Joyce‘s Ulysses. While I still have no desire to attempt reading Ulysses again, the story of its initial publication in France during a time that it was banned in the US was compelling.

kspenmoll I want to read this now! Thx for the review! 4w
Ncostell @kspenmoll It was a good one, hope you enjoy it! 4w

Both books describe Hemingway‘s early years in Paris. The Paris Wife is from Hadley‘s view & A Moveable Feast from Ernest‘s view.
Reading TWICE how Hadley LOST ALL of his manuscripts was TWICE as heartbreaking. They must have been thrown away, since there was no money 💰 in the valise. Could you imagine if the manuscripts were found, what they would be worth now?

I chose the restored version- the one that reflects Hemingway‘s last draft & wasn‘t as edited. It‘s 2 hours longer. I wonder which version will be better?! #Paris

I‘m fascinated by the ex-pats inhabiting 1920-30s post WWI Paris. I‘m particularly intrigued by this Paris bookstore, and I‘m always down for books about the publishing industry. So this biographical fiction is an obvious pick for me. I knew little of James Joyce so that was a plus, as well. I do think it helps if one is interested in at least a couple of these things going in to this book. ↓

marleed Btw, background right is the book my soon and DIL gifted me on their trip to Paris. On the right is a pic they re-enacted for me since I insisted this was a must-see destination. …The cat is the bookmark included with purchase of a book. …One of my favorite gifts ever! 1mo

marleed @charl08 @BiblioLitten @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you. Anytime visitors come into my ‘reading room‘ i always show them this book and photo. …They also stopped in a French bookstore in Nice and finally were able to communicate a French copy of The Wizard of Oz. It‘s so cool! 1mo

Kate Quinn has called this book “a love letter to books, bookstores, and book lovers everywhere” …and I wholeheartedly agree! Such a great read. Focusing on Sylvia Beach, this story explores how she started the famous Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, and was the first publisher of James Joyce‘s Ulysses. Fun cameos by writers like Hemingway, F Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and others!

A little #bookmail today. I haven‘t read this one before (I love the Vintage Classic covers, but I hate that I have to wait for them to ship from the UK via Book Depository). I‘m thinking of using this for #booked2022 nautical novel. It‘s this one or Rafael Sabatini‘s Captain Blood.

LeahBergen I haven‘t read this one but I heartily enjoyed Captain Blood! 3mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen Clearly, Instagram agrees. 🤣🤣🏴‍☠️ 3mo
LeahBergen Yep, I guess you noticed that I just voted. 😆😆 3mo
DGRachel @LeahBergen the only person who voted for Hemingway is my co-worker who is the biggest literature snob I‘ve ever met. I mean, I love her, but…🤣🤣 3mo
