“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” Come to think of it, A Moveable Feast is also a moveable feast.
This book is a must-read for any serious fan of literature – in it, an elderly Hemingway looks back at a time in his youth when he lived in Paris and schmoozed with some of the great writers of the early 20th century, from Gertrude Stein and Ezra Pound to F. Scott Fitzgerald, who was a nutter.
I can’t recommend this enough, and if you only read one of Hemingway’s books then start with this one – it’s just a shame that it isn’t longer, because there was much more for him to tell.
