A Moveable FeastBook - 1996
From Library Staff
Ah, Paris in the 20s. Who better to take us on a tour of the bustling literary movement than Ernest Hemingway himself.
Hemingway's memoirs of being a poor writer abroad in the 1920s will make you fall in love with writing and Paris and giving up everything to achieve your dreams. This is one I love to read anytime it's raining and I want to picture myself sipping espresso in a small Parisian cafe.
Ernest Hemingway's memoir of writing his way through the cafes and bars of 20s Paris. A unique, American voice in the making.

“We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other.”
“Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one sentence. Write the truest sentence you know.”
"There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it. But this is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy."

Not one of Hemingway's best works but the stories dovetail nicely with The Paris Wife. The Paris Wife is a lovely book about Hemingway's tumultuous relationship with his first wife Hadley. These stories re-iterate and expand the details and Ernest's thoughts during that time of his life.
