"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you." - Ernest Hemingway
This beautiful, evocative book brings to glowing life all the exuberance and drama of Hemingway's Paris. Some 200 photographs and writings chosen from the work of Hemingway, his friends, relatives, and biographers provide a fresh and revealing view of the life and times of America's great writer and of the city he adored.
Here are the cafes and nightclubs, the racetracks and boxing rings, the streets and houses where Hemingway and his friends played, drank, and worked. Here are the writers and artists who made the twenties the century's greatest decade and Paris their creative center—the Fitzgeralds, Gertrude Stein, Pound, Joyce, Picasso, Dos Passos, Miro—all close friends of Hemingway. And other major figures appear—the young J. D. Salinger, Gide, and Dr. William Carlos Williams.
Hemingway first arrived in Paris as a young reporter during World War I. He returned in 1945, a famous writer, to play an important role in the liberation of the city. In Paris he spent the years of the Lost Generation, and here he came, time and again, to taste the city's delights. Hemingway's Paris will bring immense pleasure to all those who share his love for the city and for the writers who lived there during some of its most glorious years.
