Published for the first time as Ernest Hemingway intended, one of the great writer's most enduring works: his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, this new edition also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son Jack and his first wife, Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of other luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Ford, and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. Sure to excite critics and readers alike, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

I have to admit that I have now discovered one of the major disadvantages of reading something on a smartphone. After finishing Snows of Kilimanjaro and still having three Hemingway pubs to visit, I wanted to read some more Hemingway, and what better book to read while one is in Paris, drinking wine...
Too bad that I didn't finish this in enough time to have it count towards my Literary Birthday book reads for 2016. I should have just DNFed it since it didn't do anything besides bore and annoy me in equal measure.So this is a memoir by Ernest Hemingway, where he talks about writing and then shit t...
Actually pretty cool, considering it's ole Hemingway. I especially enjoyed the chapters about the Fitzgerald's, although Hem tears Zelda to pieces and presents the Fitzgerald's marriage very one-sided. Of course he'd do it, being Scott's friend and all. There were funny episodes and thoughtful one...
