A Moveable Feast
From Library Staff
This is the memoir of 1920s Paris and the American expats who came to be known as the Lost Generation. I have mixed feelings about Hemingway, but I put them aside for the beautiful prose and memories this book conjures.
What price originality?
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.
Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast is Ernest Hemingway's memoir of Paris in the 1920s.

SummaryAdd a Summary
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.
QuotesAdd a Quote
"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."
