My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Moveable Feast is Ernest Hemingway’s reminiscence of the people and places that he knew when he was young, married to his first wife and just starting out as a writer in Paris. With intimate little glimpses into the lives of many prominent members of the “lost generation,” including Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein, A Moveable Feast is a fascinating read with some incredible writing in it. There is this one line that especially fascinates me:
…I thought that all generations were lost by something and always had been and always would be….
All I can say is that after reading A Moveable Feast, I am feeling a slight obsession with Hemingway coming on and it is probably a good thing that I already have For Whom The Bell Tolls out from the library and ready to read.
