Actually, I wish I had Corso's prowess in finding such gems, as well as someone to subsidize the time it takes to hunt for them. In this case, I wasn't really looking, or looking intently. AMF just found me.
Gemini ~ you mean you fell in love all over again with Hemingway, right, not Fitzgerald. Otherwise, Papa H is turning over in his grave right about now I think! But, no worries, Mate - back in the 'classics' discussion I said 'The Song of Hiawatha' was written by James Fenimore Cooper when, in fact, it was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Three names = close!
Anyway, I want to thank you guys for reminding me that I should hop to it and start reading this book! I've gotten sidetracked (Perez-Reverte would be so happy to hear that) with Parallel Worlds, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Paris in the 20's. (well, I'm not sure...maybe it does... )
No Parlez I fell in love again with F Scott Fitzgerald from Hemingway writing about his life. I like reading Hemingway but he is too full of himself for me to fall in love with. I like the needed sentimental types.
Okay - gotcha!
Sorry to misinterpret...blame it on my lack of intertextual info!
