Impressions from the reading life

Paris, Ein Fest Fürs Leben - Ernest Hemingway, Werner Schmitz

Actually pretty cool, considering it's ole Hemingway. I especially enjoyed the chapters about the Fitzgerald's, although Hem tears Zelda to pieces and presents the Fitzgerald's marriage very one-sided. Of course he'd do it, being Scott's friend and all.

 

There were funny episodes and thoughtful ones and overall sharp observations on Parisian life through the seasons. So even if you've had problems with Hemingway before (like me!), I recommend you try this.
