A Moveable Feast is perhaps the best-loved book about Paris written in the 20th century. In it, Ernest Hemingway longingly remembers his early years in Paris when he was a struggling writer in love with his wife and indeed life itself. The memoir evokes a magical time in 1920's Paris when, as Hemingway says, ?we were very poor and very happy.?
Falling under the spell of A Moveable Feast, author Lynn D. Partin retraces Hemingway?s walks throughout Paris in A Walkable Feast: Exploring Hemingway's Paris on Foot. Along the way she discovers that while some of the places mentioned in Hemingway's book have changed, the spirit of Hemingway's Paris lingers. She finds the flats where Hemingway and his famous friends?F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and others?lived and sits in the cafés where Hemingway wrote and drank. She even ventures to the racetrack where Hemingway enthusiastically bet on horses.
In A Walkable Feast, Partin visits nearly every street, address, and locale mentioned in A Moveable Feast, and with this book she invites you to tag along.
In A Walkable Feast: Exploring Hemingway?s Paris on Foot, Partin provides step-by-step instructions for each of six Walks as well as a trip to the racetrack:
Interspersed throughout are quotes from A Moveable Feast to put each place in context. Partin also examines aspects of Hemingway?s life in Paris?his family, his friends, and his writing?through the lens of A Moveable Feast.
The combination of Partin?s tours and Hemingway?s prose in A Walkable Feast: Exploring Hemingway?s Paris on Foot will make you fall in love with Paris, whether it?s your first or 15th visit.
Über den Autor: A frequent traveler to Europe, Lynn D. Partin was born in Ann Arbor and grew up in the area, spending 20 years in the Michigan public school system, from kindergarten to the University of Michigan Law School. After a few years? stint in Washington, D.C., she moved in 1985 to Portland, Oregon, with her now husband, Bill Holmes. She is officially a lobbyist by trade, so with this book she has finally managed to justify her undergraduate English major. She credits her geriatric cats for keeping her sane during the book's creation.
