What can I really say about this book? A very personal account of living in Paris in the 1920's. On one hand you have his dealings with and impressions of such characters as Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Ford Maddox Ford, T.S. Eliot, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. On the other hand there is a tender and wistful account of a place, a time, and a girl. The elements are blended together in style so unmistakably Hemingway. This small pocket edition worked perfectly as it is a story best read at a cafe or similar establishment.
