Written for the Toronto Star between 1920 and 1924, this selection of energetic pieces from Hemingway sees the author focus his gaze on Paris. Writing with characteristic verve, the author tackles cultural topics in chapters such as Living on $1,000 a Year in Paris, American Bohemians in Paris, and Parisian Boorishness. "The scum of Greenwich Village, New York, has been skimmed off and deposited in large ladles on that section of Paris adjacent to the Café Rotonde. New scum, of course, has risen to take the place of the old, but the oldest scum, the thickest scum and the scummiest scum," Hemingway wryly observes, "has come across the ocean, somehow, and with its afternoon and evening levees has made the Rotonde the leading Latin Quarter showplace for tourists in search of atmosphere."

About the Author:

Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) was a novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His best-known works include A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea, the latter of which won the Pulitzer Prize. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.

Review:

"Aficionados will recognise the nascent pith and verve of his writing, but these articles represent so much more than the baby steps of a future literary giant; they are the remnants of a lost generation of foreign reporting. . . . at once entertaining and informative."  New Statesman



"Manages to capture the essence of post-war Paris. . . . also capture[s] an often overlooked aspect of Hemingway’s work, his sense of humour . . . a beautiful read and a book that anybody who appreciates Hemingway’s work will cherish."  Irish Times

"Provides an unfettered glimpse into one of the author's most significant periods of stylistic evolution."  —Rain Taxi



Readers can "feel the excitement of living in a foreign land at that time." —The Wonderful World of TamTam Books
