Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Jonathan Cape, London 1964.
British first edition. Jacket Design by H. Tisdall.

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast is an enchanting memoir of life in 1920s Paris. It reveals some of the experiences Hemingway shared with his first wife, Hadley and his young son, Jack. A series of sketches evoke the fragile magic of Paris just after the First World War and the unbridled creativity and enthusiasm that Hemingway himself experienced. It remains one of his most beloved works.

‘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, for Paris is a moveable feast’

Ernest Hemmingway to a friend, 1950
