Hemingway's memories of his life as an unknown writer living in Paris in the twenties are deeply personal, warmly affectionate and full of wit. Looking back not only at his own much younger self, but also at the other writers who shared Paris with him - James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald - he recalls the time when, poor, happy and writing in cafes, he discovered his vocation. Written during the last years of Hemingway's life, his memoir is a lively and powerful reflection of his genius that scintillates with the romance of the city.

Reviews

Reading A Moveable Feast is a little like sitting down to a banquet with a host of bohemian luminaries

Observer

A short, perfect book… Exquisite

Independent

Here is Hemingway at his best. No one has ever written about Paris in the nineteen twenties as well as Hemingway

New York Times

The first thing to say about the 'restored' edition so ably and attractively produced by Patrick and Sean Hemingway is that it does live up to its billing . . . well worth having
