Publisher Description

Published for the first time as Ernest Hemingway intended, his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s.

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author intended it to be published.

Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Sean Hemingway, this new edition also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, and his first wife, Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of other luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Ford, and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. Sure to excite critics and listeners alike, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

  • “The first thing to say about the 'restored' edition so ably and attractively produced by Patrick and Seán Hemingway is that it does live up to its billing . . . well worth having.”

    - Atlantic
  • “Published just three years after its author’s death, Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast was greeted by an enthusiastic reading public, eager to learn new things about the Nobel laureate. This artful, candid memoir didn’t disappoint, providing Hemingway’s reminiscences about his early days as a journalist, World War I ambulance driver, and literary expatriate in Paris. Reviewers were drawn too to his insights about fellow writers, including F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein. This restored edition provides readers with an authoritative text to this important, authentically exciting work.”

    - BarnesandNoble.com, editorial review
  • “This restored version of Hemingway’s posthumously published memoir has been revised to reflect the author’s original intentions…The bulk of the story—Hemingway's travels, escapades, encounters with other writers like F. Scott Fitzgerald—[is] followed by material read by his son and grandson…Listen to Hemingway’s son Patrick, and his grandson Seán, who, in addition to sharing their own reminiscences, offer a hint of what Papa himself might have sounded like.”

About the Author

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers. During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises. He also wrote Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, the story of an old fisherman’s journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat. He also wrote short stories that are collected in Men Without Women and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories. Hemingway died in Idaho in 1961.
