By the end of his life, Hemingway and his narratives had become so intertwined in so many ways that it was often impossible to know where the fiction ended and the real life began. Hemingway was a master at incorporating elements of his own life and experience into his fiction, and acting out elements of his stories in his own life, that by the time of this text, 'A Moveable Feast', written near the end of his life (and published posthumously) the boundary between fact and fiction was a very permeable boundary.
Of course, for Hemingway, truth was about as fascinating as fiction could ever be. With this particular text, the reader learns much about Hemingway and the particular time of the artists and post-World War I community in Paris. The inscription shows the influence that this time and experience had on Hemingway:
'If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.'
Hemingway wrote this to a friend in 1950, several years before working on this text. Of course, the Moveable Feast that was Paris for Hemingway was not simply Paris, but a particular Paris - the Paris of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, of Ford Madox Ford and Ezra Pound, of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda. Hemingway has a no-holds-barred sense of writing, both for those he liked and those he didn't. His description of Zelda, for example, in both physical and personality aspects, is a rather scathing critique - F. Scott Fitzgerald and Hemingway were competitive friends, but Zelda Fitzgerald and Hemingway were rivals in many more ways. Hemingway's recollections of his wife, Hadley, are equally intimate, often romantic while remaining realistic.
The Paris that was the post-war-to-end-all-wars bastion of moderns and artistry is no longer present, yet still remains an iconic paradise of sorts given the work that was produced from this hot-house of talent, reaching half a century later into the work of Hemingway for one last, grand proclamation.
This is an important book, to be read by those who appreciate Hemingway, American authors, international influences in literature, and culture. Published after his death, this was perhaps Hemingway's way of having the final word in many then-unfinished conversations.

I really enjoyed the reading of Hemingway's Moveable Feast and living near Paris, it makes me want to visit the places he used to go (La Closerie des Lilas, The Lipp restaurant, Les Deux- Magots in St Germain-Des-Près...). He relates his happy moments with his first wife Elizabeth Hadley Richardson and their little boy in the 20s' Paris.. They were young and the world was somehow their oyster. They were friends with Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, Francis Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce ... In short, they were hungry but young and happy.
Hemingway's book is refreshing, educative and paradoxically not really nostalgic although he wrote it many years after the events happened and a couple of years after he finished it, sadly enough, he committed suicide.
The text is wonderfully written and I really appreciate re-reading some pages at times.

I really enjoyed this version of 'A Moveable Feast'. It includes commentary from his grandson as well as excerpts not found in other editions. Allegedly this is a 'less edited' version, closer to the original script. Enjoy.

D'habitude peu intéressée par les récits autobiographiques, j'ai dévoré celui-ci. Parce que c'est Hemingway, parce que c'est Paris... pour le style inimitable de l'auteur surtout

I've given this 5 stars but probably for the wrong reasons - I found it the ideal companion to 'The Paris Wife' by Paula McLean - reading the novel first. I felt that the two books complimented each other - Hemingway having written in much more detail about, for example, his days at the races. I would not have given this curt style and self-indulgent autobio 5 stars if I had just read it 'cold'! The Paris Wife. An interesting life ....... perhaps. Also amusing along side this is Minuit à Paris

The book is written is such simple language and yet it transports us to Paris during the very magical 1920's. So interesting to learn of this time during Hemingway's early career, when he was struggling to write his first novel while dealing with poverty, hunger, cold. And yet through it all, we feel the intense happiness of the author - just happy being in Paris with so many wonderful (and very famous) friends.

Dans ce livre, publié bien après sa mort, Ernest Hemingway donne sa version de sa vie à Paris au début de sa carrière; une excellente contrepartie à la biographie de Hadley Richardson, la première femme du grand homme de littérature, si cruellement abandonnée.

Un dernier livre très émouvant d'un homme qui a beaucoup souffert, en particulier à la fin de sa vie !
Un style minimaliste, bien longtemps avant Marguerite Duras.

A fascinating insight to Hemingway's life as a writer and particularly the atmosphere in Paris during the time he lived there.
