A Moveable Feast

Since the attacks in Paris a week last Friday, Ernest Hemingway’s cherished book about the city, A Moveable Feast, has sold out, as copies are being left at memorial sites in a symbol of defiance. This slim book, published after Hemingway’s death in 1961, is a series of sketches written from his seat in cafes and bars, his musing on the French way of life and his experiences with the characters he meets. The manuscript was unfinished prior to his death and early published versions included the hand of various scholars, but since 2009 it’s been possible to buy the book edited by his grandson, Sean.
