Publisher's Summary

The 1920s in Paris are the pivotal years in Hemingway's apprenticeship as a writer, whether sitting in caf├ęs or at the feet of Gertrude Stein.
These are the heady times of the Nick Adams short stories, Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and the writing of The Sun Also Rises. These are also the years of Hemingway's first marriage to Hadley Richardson, the birth of his first son, and his discovery of the bullfights at Pamplona.

Slow down narrator, slow down.

What did you like best about Hemingway: The Paris Years? What did you like least?

Actually very good information and lots of interest for the diehard Hemmingway fan. Author seems to have a good working knowledge of Hem's life and times.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This guy thinks he has a fire to put out. He is actually breathless trying to race through - too sad. Repeating "kway" for quay didn't endear him much to me either.

Too fast!!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator reads so fast that sometimes it seems he's about to lose his breath... which is very distracting from the the story.
