Publisher's Summary

When Ernest Hemingway died in 1961 he had nearly completed A Moveable Feast, which eventually was published posthumously in 1964 and edited by his widow Mary Hemingway. This new special edition of Hemingway's classic memoir of his early years in Paris in the 1920's presents the original manuscript as the author intended it to be published at the time of his death. This new publication also includes a number of unfinished Paris sketches on writing and experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, his wife Hadley, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ford Maddox Ford and others. A personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, precedes an introduction by the editor, Sean Hemingway, grandson of the author.

Perfect complement-Paris Wife & Midnight in Paris

Don’t let the Sample discourage you from listening to this wonderful book! The Sample—the forward and introduction—are presented by relatives of Hemingway, not the narrator J. B. Lloyd.

Lloyd does a wonderful job narrating this up-lifting Hemingway book. For a sample of Lloyd’s voice, check out Michael Crichton’s Micro: A Novel.

This story is a love story and a tale of regret—a tale of lessons learned from the altered and divorcee.

You hear Hemingway’s thoughts about himself, about the writing process, and about others including some of literature’s best: Fitzgerald, James, Ford, Gertrude Stein (It is no wonder why she didn’t talk with him after this book—showing that honesty in print isn’t always the best policy.).

A bonus is found at the end of the book: Hemingway’s revisions of a section. You hear how he edited a section of his work, over, and over again—the subtle changes towards perfection, Hemingway style.

This is a perfect complement to The Paris Wife and Midnight in Paris.

Please click YES if this review was helpful to you. And Happy Listening!

outstanding

Far, far better than the original version, both in text and narration. Hard to imagine anyone not enjoying this book, and I'm not a lover of Hemingway's fiction.

Very enjoyable and useful

This audio book gives interesting information about the author's life. This proved invaluable to me when I was studying the author. It enabled be to link together the book I was studying at the time (Fiesta) and some of his other short stories and novels. It also gives fascinating information about the other artists Hemingway used to know.

An Unforgetable Memoir

This is an excellent memoir of Ernest Hemingway's life in Paris. It's descriptions of Paris in the twenties are vivid and feature characters such as Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein. The memoir is superbly narrated and is very moving throughout. I have listened to this audio-book several times and it impresses me every time.
