This is a scary sci fi book that takes place in a reality where the religious right has taken over, and abortion is considered murder.

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.
