    When Ernest Hemingway died in 1961 he had nearly completed A Moveable Feast, which eventually was published posthumously in 1964 and edited by his widow Mary Hemingway. This new special edition of Hemingway's classic memoir of his early years in Paris in the 1920's presents the original manuscript as the author intended it to be published at the time of his death.

    Julie says: "Perfect complement-Paris Wife & Midnight in Paris"
    "Restored edition better than original"

    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Moveable Feast?

    Which scene was your favorite?

    His trip to Lyons with F. Scott Fitzgerald.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not laugh or cry, but I was


    Any additional comments?

    John Bedford Lloyd truly becomes Hemingway, and you feel like you're hearing Hemingway tell his own story. I had read the original many years ago, but this is a great improvement. Hemingway's grandsons explain the changes made (re-arranging chapters, additional chapters on Fitzgerald that the original editors thought were too controversial, Hemingway's own thoughts on Hadley (his wife at the time of publication, Mary, had left much of this out), and, at the end, scraps of passages from the book that Hemingway wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote
