Plot Summary 

A fun book about how Ernest Hemingway’s time living in Paris and traveling Europe might have been viewed by his first wife, Hadley.

My Thoughts 

The Paris Wife portrays the light and dark sides of the literary scene in the Paris Jazz Age and includes real-life characters from that time (F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, etc).

Although I didn’t love The Sun Also Rises when I read it in high school, The Paris Wife made me want to try again with Hemingway.

The Paris Wife is on my Book Club Recommendations List.
