Fictional account of Hemingway's time in Paris while writing The Sun Also Rises.

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!

American Wife, Curtis Settenfeld supposedly was written loosely after Laura Bush. Made me oddly fall in love with George.... I know, not normal!! read it and you'll see what I mean

The Paris Wife {About Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley... Such a stunner of a book}

The Paris Wife - frustrating in what I believe is an accurate portrayal of Hemingway and Hadley in 1920's Paris. I'm not sure I'd really call it a love story, but it was interesting at least...

The Paris Wife: A Novel by Paula McLain: Told from the point of view of Ernest Hemingway's first wife (read along with Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast")

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).
