Begun in the autumn of 1957 and published posthumously in 1964, Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast" captures what it meant
to be young and poor and writing in Paris during the 1920s. A correspondent for the "Toronto Star, " Hemingway arrived in
Paris in 1921, three years after the trauma of the Great War and at the beginning of the transformation of Europe's cultural
landscape: Braque and Picasso were experimenting with cubist form; James Joyce, long living in self-imposed exile from his
native Dublin, had just completed "Ulysses; " Gertrude Stein held court at 27 Rue de Fleurus, and deemed young Ernest a member
of "une gneration perdue; " and T.S. Eliot was a bank clerk in London. It was during these years that the as-of-yet unpublished
young writer gathered the material for his first novel "The Sun Also Rises, " and the subsequent masterpieces that followed.
