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...:hypnotic: )

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! :cool:

:wave: This is my first visit to the ONBC, Wow what a great place. I have always been intrigued by Hemingway, not sure why. But I am looking forward to reading "A Moveable Feast". Great find Parlaz,even if the book found you. I really enjoy browsing used book stores and looking for first editions. Hope to join in the discussion.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Paris is a place that has always intrigued me, I have never been but have always wanted to go, I'm so looking forward to reading through this book :-D

Welcome to ONBC, Catacomb Dweller. I’m sorry that we’ve missed you for this discussion. We look forward to you joining us in the future, though. :hope:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
