Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches.
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. Now, this special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published.
Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest’s sole surviving son, and an introduction by grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that 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.
Wonderful narrative voice
Out of all the many audiobooks I have and listen to, this one by far is my favorite. The voice on the narrative makes one feel as if Hemingway himself is speaking. It's a calm, deliberative delivery that's a joy to sit back and listen to. The reading itself helps to make this audiobook a moveable feast. I listen to it often. Rest in peace, Hem.
Buy it and enjoy every word!
A fantastic compilation of short stories that role into one great journey through Paris in the 1920's with those X-Patriots you wish you could be like. The great scenes between Hemingway, Ezra Pound and Fitzgerald are gems that will be set into your mind forever after listening (or reading) this story. The best thing is that you leave the last paragraph of the book without the feeling like you want to punch Hemingway in the nose... if you are a Hemingway fan, you'll know what I mean. Buy it and enjoy every word!
