Publisher's Summary

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

A Movable Café

Like a movable Café in Paris itself, this audio book can be revisited so many times at any page in whatever weather, best of all, of course, is when it’s raining.

You’ll hear some lovely anecdotes of writers/ artists living in the same era as Hemingway, which is most unique and refreshing. It was like your high school desk mate telling you about the girl from the class next door.

Hemingway also explores his relationship with writing, that he speaks of with such respect and affection. I came across many famous sentences I’ve read before as quotes throughout my literary eduction in my teenage hood. It felt both nostalgic and very endearing.
