Hemingway fans - don't miss this!

A fictionalized account of Hemingway's first marriage and their life in Paris just before he hit it big. Fascinating! Read A Moveable Feast and compare.

Delightful!

I am only 200 pages through the book, but I am enjoying it a lot. It reminds me of the movie "Midnight in Paris".
