Another book of the 1920’s Paris The Paris Wife by Paula McLain has the same vibrant setting swirling around Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley. After reading The Paris Wife you will want to hear Hemingway’s side of the story by reading A Moveable Feast.
When facts and fiction converge reality is the result. Yes, you can Google for fact checking but Wikipedia can’t give you the meat of the story because it is one dimensional at best. Perhaps you should even pick up a non-fiction book or two to make sure the “facts” are all in agreement. To get the full meal we need good fiction authors to flesh out the facts. For desert I’m watching the DVD by PBS titled Paris the Luminous Years.
