After reading the first chapter or two of this memoir, I decided that I needed to savor it. In this book, Hemingway recounts some of his experiences living in Paris in the 1920s. Everytime I opened this book, I was transported there.

I found it most enjoyable to read when I was around town, in coffee shops, on a park bench, etc. There is something about reading Hemmingways happy, poor mans view of Paris that made me want to be out and about, experiencing a different ambiance than the familiarity of home.

This book has quick chapters that jump a bit from person to person, activity to activity. Though some of the subject matter seems a bit scattered, the entire text feels real and its easy to loose yourself in the time-period and location. I really enjoyed getting a feel for Hemmingways writing process, and I loved his descriptions of food at the bars, cafes and restaurants he spent time in.

This is a book I will keep and read again and again.
