ABOUT THE BOOK I first read Hemingway’s posthumously-published memoir, A Moveable Feast (1964), when I was spending my junior year abroad studying at the University of Exeter in England, and I fell in love with the book. I think it appealed to me especially since I imagined myself to be -- like Hemingway and his friends -- an expatriate, at least for those nine months. It’s an exquisitely readable book, peppered with all sorts of literary figures I knew through English classes: Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ford Madox Ford. There is nothing better for a young reader than to learn the secrets and hear the voices of writers known only through their novels, stories, and poems. A Moveable Feast brings them and the 1920s Parisian literary culture that surrounded them alive. MEET THE AUTHOR professional writer Vivian Wagner has wide-ranging interests, from technology and business to music and motorcycles. She writes features regularly for ECT News Network, and her work has also appeared in American Profile, Entrepreneur, Bluegrass Unlimited, and many other publications. She is also the author of Fiddle: One Woman, Four Strings, and 8,000 Miles of Music (Citadel 2010). For more about her, visit her website at www.vivianwagner.net. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK A Moveable Feast is an episodic book, with short chapters devoted to various people, themes, and locations important to Hemingway during the period he and Hadley lived in Paris from 1921 to 1926. The book is roughly chronological, beginning when Hemingway and Hadley first arrive in Paris and ending when Hemingway has an affair and their marriage begins to fall apart. The book’s first chapter is called “A Good Café on the Place St.-Michel,” and it gives readers a first glimpse into the world that Hemingway inhabits. He describes how he’s writing about Michigan and his boyhood while being in the café, and the perspective he has in this opening scene encapsulates the expatriate perspective he has throughout the book: “I was writing about up in Michigan and since it was a wild, cold blowing day it was that sort of day in the story.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The city was sad all year round, but the first cold rains of winter brought everything to a head. The streets were wet and black, and the small shops were closed. There were no more tops to the high white houses, only the wet blackness of the street. #2 I was writing a story, and I was very excited. I was writing it now, and it was not writing itself. I was tired of rum St. James without thinking about it. Then the story was finished and I was very tired. I read the last paragraph and then looked up. The girl had gone. I was sad. #3 I would leave Paris and go to a place where the weather would be snowing, which would cover the road and the high hillsides. I would give up the room in the hotel where I wrote, and we would have money to make the trip.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn, language: English, abstract: A Moveable Feast deals with the years 1921 to 1926 spent by Hemingway as a young man at the beginning of his literary carrier in Paris. He started to write it in 1958 and it actually remained unfinished when he committed suicide in 1961. Taking into account the fact that at that time Hemingway had already written all his best books, that in 1953 he was awarded The Pulitzer Prize and in 1954 - the Nobel Prize for Literature, one could suppose that the book was written by a successful and confident author who looked back at his young years with a gentle smile (sort of "how it all started") probably not without nostalgia. But if one takes a closer look at Hemingway's biography one finds out that the Paris book was being written by the "the rapidly ageing Ernest" [Svoboda, p.159] in the midst of health problems and family pressure, probably foreseeing the end of his literary career, suffering from continuous depressions and paranoia. Add to all this repercussions of the two plane crashes which he survived and the loss of the mother, Pauline Hemingway and his close friend and editor Charles Scribner and you will be able to imagine (probably quite remotely) what Hemingway's state of mind really was while he was writing the book in question. What could be the message of the book written under such circumstances - at the top of the literary career and facing the gap of despair? Was it an attempt to explain to himself what he had done wrong with his life, to calculate what had been lost and what had been gained during Paris years or to prove that in spite of increasing difficulties with writing he is still a great writer? Was he trying to show what had made him the kind of writer he was and (as he desperately hoped) still kept him on the top or was he simply recollecting the old happy times in order to forget the present frustration?

The Five Little Mortrudes were orphaned when their parents were run over by a tractor "stitching and stapling" them into the earth. The children became famous because of the Murders and were dramatized according to their particular supposed characters: romantic Farnham, noble Jessica, clever Gidley, gifted Fleanor, and good Olizer (known as Little Od). But the real nature of the enigmatic Mortrudes was never apparent even to their guardian, Willard Calhoun, who created the notion that they were poor, as all orphans should be. As soon as they could the Mortrudes put the town of Clorinda behind them to make their fortunes in the world and returned only 21 years later when Calhoun decided to give them their inheritance. They had new roles now: Sailor Farnham, Scholar Gidley, Actress Jessica, Author Eleanor (Little Od died at 11 trying to fly). To disabuse Willard of the idea that he ever understood them, the Mortrudes reveal that Little Od actually killed their parents and then later killed himself. The Mortrudes remain superior to events to the end, telling as much as they please, withholding as much as will mystify. Though if it weren't for their author's highly imaginative and witty prose style the Mortrudes could hardly stand by themselves.
