The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - this book totally made me want to be a writer in the 1920s instead of modern day....although I'd likely be a miserable drunk like the rest of them.

It's the story of Ernest Hemingway's first wife Hadley as they fall in love, get married and move to Paris in the twenties.  A very interesting glimpse into their life

Set in Paris (this is a theme ... I guess I need to move there) and glimpsing into the lives of Hemingway (through his wife's eyes) and his cast of writer and artist friends. It's a great compliment to the movie Midnight in Paris. When you're done, you think you know these people ... and you want to read Hemingway ASAP.

The Paris Wife... This was one of my book club's selections that turned out to be a delightful surprise-- I loved it! In fact, I was so taken with Ernest Hemmingway's first wife, Hadley's, account of the couple's "Paris years" that I finally read his "A Moveable Feast," which is his account of the same time. Sounds dull, but it fascinated me for some reason. Recommended!
