Not many things happened in this book, but there was a tension between the characters that was beautifully captured in the dialogues. I enjoyed it a lot.
An interesting collection of fictional remiscences from Hemingway's life in Paris. #56-2022
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?
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.
One of my favorites in which Hemingway spends a lot of time in Paris cafes writing and drinking white wine.
Also enjoyed the Ken Burns Hemingway documentary from last year. Really interesting look at a talented, but very flawed figure.
📚📚📚📚 A series of true to life vignettes surrounding Hemingway‘s early Paris life. Collection includes interludes with Fitzgerald, Pound, Ford, Stein and mentions other great arts figures. Not for the easily offended or without historical context. A rich tableau of what a creative existence was in the early 1900‘s without heavy existential conundrums.
