John Bedford Lloyd

Unabridged Audiobook

6 hours 44 minutes
Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches.

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

Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest’s sole surviving son, and an introduction by grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book 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 literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft.

Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, 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.

Amazing book! Listened to it on my way through Idaho to Ketchum and it ended as I drove by the cemetery so I stopped at his grave. The book was very well narrated, and of course the book it’s self was amazing.

The book was less the feel of Paris, sights, sounds, smells, tastes than I expected and the detailed exploration of relationships significantly more. Probably essential reading for any Hemingway fan as clearly we are inside the writer's head at the end of his life and gain his matured perspective on his personal relationships of his early career. Hemingway's sharing of times spent with F Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda was an unexpected bonus. The narration was exceptional. To my mind I was listening to Hemingway's voice.

Mad to read these chapters. Especially after the intro with some of the background. Started reading these after finishing CHINK - a must-read too!
