Begun in the autumn of 1957 and published posthumously in 1964, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast captures what it meant to be young and poor and writing in Paris during the 1920s. A correspondent for the Toronto Star, Hemingway arrived in Paris in 1921, three years after the trauma of the Great War and at the beginning of the transformation of Europe's cultural landscape: Braque and Picasso were experimenting with cubist form; James Joyce, long living in self-imposed exile from his native Dublin, had just completed Ulysses; Gertrude Stein held court at 27.

One star for this gem of English literature? Yes, if you are considering the paperback edition with the orange-ish cover with a photo of a walkway by the Seine, BEWARE. "All of the s adnes s of the city came s uddenly with the firs t cold rains of winter . . . . " Even my auto-correct tries to fix this! Hemingway wrote a cozy, wonderful piece for those curious for from what "Midnight in Paris" hails, an insider's flawlessly written account of those heady years when everyone who was anyone was living in Paris. But in this miserably typefaced edition, there is a space after every single "s" in the entire book. There is no publication page (with the date, location of publication, etc). It is not appended with Hemingway's additional musings, as is the hardcover. I purchased this as a gift, thinking a paperback would suffice. Who can read anything published this way? Do NOT purchase it. Amazon, FIX THIS.

This is a posthumous book comprised of fragments. Some of the writing is crisp and brilliant; other parts are morose and sophomoric. But overall, we get a good glimpse of Hemingway's mostly happy years in Paris in the mid twenties. The author claims there is more fiction than fact, an arbitrary and unexplained process where he chooses who and what to include and what to leave out. He claims that Ezra Pound and F. Scott Fitzgerald were very close friends, and yet the descriptions of the former are fleeting and those of the latter rather depressing and uncomplimentary. He seems to enjoy trashing Ford Maddox Ford. Sketches of Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Beach are mostly positive, although he gets some digs in on Stein at the end. Vignettes about horse racing, boxing, skiing, drinking flesh out some of the author's interests and milieu. The description of some by now obscure painters and writers shows rapier wit and description.

The clear draw is insight into the writer's early life in a marvelous city most of us love. We must keep in mind he was in his mid-twenties too, and not yet an established author. Physical and mental scars from WWI had not healed. Themes of mental illness and alcoholism are explored in other people, not himself.

The great cafes of Montparnasse and Saint Germaine remain, somewhat gentrified, perhaps still a stage for all the diverse people who frequent them. Today's artists and writers probably can't afford to live in Hemingway's old neighborhoods, but they are somewhere within the Peripherique, recording their Paris. The author would understand.

Affection for his first son and first wife, "the heroine" of the book abound. There are some interesting insights into the craft of writing. The overlong introduction and postscripts by his relatives may or may not be of interest to the reader who is not "a scholar". For those who love the city, and/or the author, there is much here to savor and some to ignore.

I love this book. I am not sure why I ddin't read it a long time ago, but I am glad that I finally got around to it. This book is like a mini-vacation, roaming around Paris in the 20's with Earnest Hemingway and all of his starving artist friends. It is a natural companion to "The Paris Wife", which was very popular a few years back. I wish I had read this book before we visited Paris last summer. As far as I can tell, a lot of Paris is unchanged, and we stayed on the left bank where we followed in many of Hemingway's footsteps. I also enjoyed reading "The Lodger," a book which Gertrude Stein recommends to Hemingway when they discuss the best books that they have been reading. It was a lot of fun, feeling like a member of the Hemingway and Gertrude Stein book club, and extended my adventure.

This rating is not for Hemingway, but for the physical book itself. I do not recommend buying this version. I thought it was a great deal ($5) and believed I'd be getting a quality book because it was brand new and sold directly from Amazon (rather than some unknown, third-party seller), but I ended up getting what seems like an amateur, self-published "book". There is no title page, no page numbers, there is a space after every single letter "S" in the entire book (so, you can imagine how many strange spaces there are on every single page, making it difficult to read coherently) and so on. I ended up buying another copy of A Moveable Feast (The Restored Edition) and am much happier with that version. A "real" book. I am not sure what happened with the poor construction of this edition, but I was disappointed and felt duped.

Paris in the 1920s was a magical time for Hemingway. He and his first wife Hadley lived very frugally, but his lack of cash was more than compensated for by the richness of the people who moved through his life: Sylvia Beach, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda, were just some of the people Hemingway interacted with.

This classic made Paris seem the romantic ideal for starving artists. It is a nostalgic look back at a time gone forever, but is not sentimental. A lovely look at at lovely time in an artist's live.
