Hemingway's France: Images of the Lost Generation | [Winston Conrad]

Hemingway's France: Images of the Lost Generation

Ernest Hemingway's literary ambitions took root in France in the 1920s among some of the most extravagantly creative artists of the twentieth century. Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, and others were drawn to the left bank of the Seine in Paris after World War I. Hemingway joined them and, with the publication of his book The Sun Also Rises became one of the most powerful forces in the vortex of talent and experimentation.

Publisher's Summary

Ernest Hemingway's literary ambitions took root in France in the 1920s among some of the most extravagantly creative artists of the twentieth century. Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, Cole Porter, Sergey Diaghilev, and others were drawn to the left bank of the Seine in Paris after World War I. Hemingway joined them and, with the publication of his book The Sun Also Rises, which epitomized Paris during the jazz era, became one of the most powerful forces in the vortex of talent and experimentation.

Author Winston Conrad writes, "This book is my attempt to illustrate Hemingway's attachment to France and its City of Light, to connect us with the magic and romance that inspired him to write wonderful stories and great books."

What the Critics Say

"Hemingway's France is 'must' read for all Hemingway fans and for the nonspecialist general reader with an interest in the writings, paintings, and poetry created in those turbulent times by the now legendary personalities of yesteryear." (Internet Book Watch)

    "I liked this a lot"

    This was really nice - it gives plenty of details and context regarding Hemingway's post - WWI time in France. If you're familiar with Paris there are plenty of details about the neighborhoods that the Lost Generation frequented and you'll get a real sense of what Paris (and other parts of France) were like at the time.

    "interesting."
    What did you like best about this story?

    It gives an insight into a time, pre war Paris and the connections made by Hemmingway.


    What about Tom Parker’s performance did you like?

    He is fine for this book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are interested in Hemmingway and his life and times, this would be kind of interesting.
