Opinion

From Library Staff

Love him or hate him, Hemingway has written a beautiful, evocative memoir of Paris in the 20s.

I was already in love with Paris and the 1920s, but this is book that truly defined it for me.

I read this book after i read The Paris Wife. Both books are accounts for The Hemingway's years in Paris. I really enjoyed The Paris Wife which then encouraged me to read The Moveable Feast to compare and contrast.
Love the first-person accounts.

Read this book after The Paris Wife, more out of an interest in Hadley, Hemmingway's wife, than the author himself. I don't appreciate Hemmingway's fiction and short stories, but found this to be an interesting account of his time as a young writer, husband, and father in Paris.

Enjoyed this book and the first-person accounts regarding other famous people of the time, such as Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein. Favorite quote: "He liked the works of his friends, which is beautiful as loyalty but can be disastrous as judgment."

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.

"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."
