I have been reading this book off and on for about a year. Its a memoir of Hemingway's time in Paris and each chapter is fairly independent from the others. I had a hard time sticking with it because it never felt like much of a story. But reading The Paris Wife was the perfect motivation to finish the book and see the same story from his point of view. I am just not much of a Hemingway fan, but this was one of his better books, particularly the chapters on F. Scott Fitzgerald. I'm glad I read the book (if for no other reason than it gets Brian off my case) but I can't say I plan on reading any more Hemingway anytime soon!
