This is a posthumous book comprised of fragments Some of the writing is crisp and brilliant; other parts are morose and sophomoric But overall we get a good glimpse of Hemingway's mostly happy years in Paris in the mid twenties The author claims there is fiction than fact an arbitrary and unexplained process where he chooses who and what to include and what to leave out He claims that Ezra Pound and F Scott Fitzgerald were very close friends and yet the descriptions of the former are fleeting and those of the latter rather depressing and uncomplimentary He seems to enjoy trashing Ford Maddox Ford Sketches of Gertrude Stein and Sylvia Beach are mostly positive although he gets some digs in on Stein at the end Vignettes about horse racing boxing skiing drinking flesh out some of the author's interests and milieu The description of some by now obscure painters and writers shows rapier wit and descriptionThe clear draw is insight into the writer's early life in a marvelous city most of us love We must keep in mind he was in his mid twenties too and not yet an established author Physical and mental scars from WWI had not healed Themes of mental illness and alcoholism are explored in other people not himselfThe great cafes of Montparnasse and Saint Germaine remain somewhat gentrified perhaps still a stage for all the diverse people who freuent them Today's artists and writers probably can't afford to live in Hemingway's old neighborhoods but they are somewhere within the Peripheriue recording their Paris The author would understandAffection for his first son and first wife the heroine of the book abound There are some interesting insights into the craft of writing The overlong introduction and postscripts by his relatives may or may not be of interest to the reader who is not a scholar For those who love the city andor the author there is much here to savor and some to ignore À 2 Free download

I came across this as a result of a mention in a news item following the Paris shootings So I probably would not have read it or in fact known about it but for that itemI thoroughly enjoyed this book for a number of reasons but mainly I like Hemingway's style of writing his humour and observations I think this book has a certain timeless feel to it and sums up perfectly the spirit of 1920's and maybe 21st Century Paris hope soAnyway that said I am now a Hemingway convert and I plan to read some of his works
