Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Sean Hemingway, this new edition also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son Jack and his first wife, Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of other luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Ford, and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. Sure to excite critics and readers alike, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and enthusiasm that Hemingway himself experienced. In the world of letters it is a unique insight into a great literary generation, by one of the best American writers of the twentieth century.

Very Good. The book itself is ever so slightly shelf rubbed but otherwise without visible defect. The front end page features a previous owner's inscription in blue ink. Apart from that, the pages are crisp, clean, and together. The dust jacket is shelf rubbed, torn and chipped in multiple places. About 1/3 of the spine of the jacket is missing at the bottom and the edges are chipped and torn, particularly at the corners and top of the spine. There are also blue ink scribble markings from a previous owner on the back of the dust jacket. The book is well bound, and will present slightly more attractively in cellophane.

But picks up as he describes in detail how he sees and view things.. it made me want to visit Europe and enjoy all that he spoke of, places he visit, foods he ate and drinks he drank! It was exciting! and who knows maybe one day I'll do the same. :-)

I wanted to look at Paris through Hemingway's eyes. I was not disappointed.

I purchased this book for my husband for Christmas and he was thrilled. The book is in very good condition, with the exception of written notes on the pages of the book from its former owner. My husband was not perturbed by this, however, as he thought it rather interesting to view her thinking about the subject at hand.

Hemingway wrote this autobiographical tour of Paris some time before he died; it was published posthumously by his widow, Mary.
A movable feast is an expression Hemingway used often in his earlier works, such as Across the River and Into the Trees--published in 1950. "Happiness is a movable feast." "Next Saturday is a movable feast," and "If you're lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man,then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast." Here Hem takes you on a guided tour of the places in Paris, mostly clean and well lighted, where the food was good and cheap and where he could drink and write the bits of overheard conversation you'll find in his novels and stories. Having been in Paris as a young man, reading this book was quite moving.
