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!
Paula McLain's "The Paris Wife: a Novel." The story of Ernest Hemmingway's first marriage, told from the perspective of his first wife, Hadley. Fascinating story for its own sake, made even more interesting by the biographical detail about the writer and his theories/demons. Love, friendship, betrayal, art, and a craving for attention. A must read for any lit. lover (even if you don't like Hemmingway).
