Hemingway writes about the expatriate era in Paris, where he was surrounded by Gertrude Stein, Ford Maddox Ford, Scott Fitzgerald, and Ezra Pound. He yalks about his first wife, Hadley, and their son Bumby, and his methods of working in this ancient, lively city. They ski in Switzerland and get caught up in horse racing, but Hemingway is at his most adventurous talking about the cafes and local characters he encountered.

This book is a non-fiction account of Hemingway's early days in Paris. There is much insight into the minds of the characters of F. Scot Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and T.S. Eliot. The writing is magnificent and the idea of seeing some of the 20th century's best writers through the eyes of the 20th century's best writer is rather intriguing.
