A Moveable Feast Read-a-Long Getting Ready to Start!
I purchased the 1964 first edition of Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast (edited by Hemingway’s 4th and final wife) quite a few years ago from a Half-Price bookstore in Alamo Heights. It just never seemed to make it to the top of my TBR pile. Then, after reading The Paris Wife by Paula McClain, I promised myself I would finally read A Moveable Feast before the end of 2011 and … well … that didn’t happen. But, no more procrastinating! I will be joining Wallace over at Unputdownables.net for her A Moveable Feast Read-a-Long and posting on my progress and thoughts over the next four Fridays. Check out Unputdownables.net for more details on participating. I’m super excited!
I don’t own the 2009 restored edition of A Moveable Feast (revised by Hemingway’s grandson Seán), so I am especially looking forward to reading comments from readers with that newest edition. The first edition and the restored edition are both controversial with claims of slanted editing leveled against both. What did Hemingway actually intend? We may never know since Hemingway died in 1961 before finishing A Moveable Feast.
