Hemingway's captivating memoir of living in Paris during the twenties.

'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'

Hemingway's memories of his life as an unknown writer living in Paris in the twenties are deeply personal, warmly affectionate and full of wit. Looking back not only at his own much younger self, but also at the other writers who shared Paris with him - James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald - he recalls the time when, poor, happy and writing in cafes, he discovered his vocation. Written during the last years of Hemingway's life, his memoir is a lively and powerful reflection of his genius that scintillates with the romance of the city.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reading A Moveable Feast is a little like sitting down to a banquet with a host of bohemian luminaries * Observer *
Here is Hemingway at his best. No one has ever written about Paris in the nineteen twenties as well as Hemingway * New York Times *
The first thing to say about the 'restored' edition so ably and attractively produced by Patrick and Sean Hemingway is that it does live up to its billing . . . well worth having * The Atlantic *

“Hemingway takes you there”

Having only read a few short stories of Hemingway many years ago, I picked up this work of non-fiction not quite knowing what to expect. I wasn't disappointed as with A Moveable Feast we have a collection of... More
