A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

 

Read by James Naughton ~4 1/2hours

Description: Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most enduring works. Since Hemingway’s personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined the changes made to the text before publication.

Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Hemingway’s sole surviving son, and an introduction by Hemingway’s grandson, the book also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences Hemingway had with his son Jack and his first wife Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft.

Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.
