'The Paris Wife'

November Book Club Selection

The Paris WifeThe life of Ernest Hemingway is well-documented. Hemingway himself kept diaries throughout his life, and chronicled his many adventures and loves.

The Paris Wife is told from the point of view of Hemingway's first wife, Hadley Richardson, and recounts their courtship, marriage and life together while living abroad. While it is a piece of historical fiction, the author, Paula McClain, relied heavily on Hemingway's own memoir, A Moveable Feast, in order to write this book. It is a moving but ultimately sad portrayal of Ernest's and Hadley's marriage, but one that both romantics and Hemingway-lovers can find satisfaction with.
