From Amazon.com

Escape to Paris

Ernest Hemingway moved around the world a lot; in the 1920s, he lived in Paris, with his first wife.  A Moveable Feast is his account of that time, when he was a struggling journalist and writer.

In the 1964, after his death, his fourth wife reworked the unpublished manuscript and had it published.

And in 2010, Hemingway's grandson (by Hemingway's second wife), Sean, reedited the book, including sections that apparently were left out of the original.  A Moveable Feast, the Restored Edition is the result of research and includes personal family connections.

Join the WMCC Lunchtime Book Group on Thursday, March 23, at noon in the Library. Bring your lunch!

Books and audios are available in the library.
