How fantastic. I hope I can read this very soon, as I have recently returned from a few days in central Paris where I was for the first time in a long time - I used to live there and now have parents-in-law in the 'burbs, but nothing beats being right in the thick of things! Thank you SO much 42again - I am hugely grateful!! And thank you for the lovely stickers that will definitely go to good use!

I loved this - thank you! I was nearly finished reading "The Mayflower Pilgrims" when i went and left that book in a pub. This was the book that I picked up in the interim. So I was reading about Hemingway's flâneries by the Seine just when Notre Dame went up in flames... I really loved all the insight into being a writer as much as the nostalgia for days gone by in Paris. Some things haven't changed so much but a lot has... It is quite a historic document in some ways. What a life he led, with the horses, the dogs, the cafés, the skiing, the bullfights in Spain... even if some of it was spent in penury. There is a paragraph near the end that I read to my husband this morning, as it could describe one or two of our least likeable politicians at the moment. The description of the pilot fish on p124.

Very aptly caught on the fly while staying at ETMadrid's place, this book by an american author celebrating Paris. Always happy to have the opportunity to read Hemingway's english.

My guess is that Hemingway was a certainly difficult but above all complex character and that this book shows but tiny details of it : the young, ambitious, gruff, hard-working and poor Hemingway. It's a lot about him and his work and some famous friends, some more about his wife at the time, and the son they already had who is hardly mentioned before the final chapter. Now is a different time and (one may think) even a different country from what Hemingway knew, but it seems he was young and happy the way people still are (or still were back in the nineties before social networking). Hemingway wishes to thank Paris for these good memories but I am not sure Paris has much to do with it. Maybe everyone feels that the place where one was once young and happy was the best place to be back then. On the other hand, Hemingway does not seem to have been poor the way people still are nowadays. It appears that in the twenties poor people could live near Pantheon, afford a nurse and a maid and spend holidays alternatively touring in Spain from plaza de toros to plaza de toros, enjoying farniente in Italy or skiing in Austria. Those were the times… Maybe in the end the reason why this book may be a must-read is if you are a writer yourself, for the lines about working strength, discipline, and how hunger may sharpen your inspiration and vision.
