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 *
"A short, perfect book... Exquisite" * Independent *
"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" -- Christopher Hitchens * 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

“To Paris With Love”

I wish I’d read this this before visiting Paris. Hemingway’s vivid recollections of the foreign city of his youth (though the ‘Lost Generation’ were old before there time) brilliantly captures the exciting artistic... More
