A Moveable Feast

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Ernest Hemingway

Narrated By: James Naughton

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: June 2006

Duration: 5 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches.

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most enduring works. Since Hemingway’s personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this 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 grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book 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 literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft.

Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

    I loved, loved, loved this book! I hadn't read Hemingway since high school and, frankly, didn't like him that much. What a wonderful portrait he paints of being young in Paris in the 1920's. And the people he knows are all people you're familiar with (and he pulls no punches about what he thinks of them). To me what is most moving is his portrait of his first wife, Hadley. He clearly regrets how he treated her and this beautiful book is his apology to her. I think the narrator does a great job. It's a great read!

  • Meredith

    This was my first real foray into Hemingway's work, and I loved it. It's a fascinating look not only into a period of Hemingway's private life, but also into the personalities who were at the forefront of the famed "Lost Generation" of modern literature. As Hemingway gets to know writers like Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound and Scott Fitzgerald, he talks about them so intimately that you really feel as though you're getting to know them, too. You also get quite an intimate portrait of the young Hemingway as seen by the older Hemingway, for whom the innocence he still had at that time seems to be a bittersweet memory. Although I find James Naughton's narration kind of flat, it actually works pretty well for an author like Hemingway, whose language is so plain and straightforward. A great audiobook!
