Praise
"Much more than a 'woman-behind-the-man' homage, this beautifully crafted tale is an unsentimental tribute to a woman who acted with grace and strength as her marriage crumbled."
From the Publisher
Annotation The community of American writers and artists living in France between the two world wars supplies numerous scholarly accounts and personal remembrances, among them Ernest Hemingway's own A MOVEABLE FEAST. Paula McLain's novel THE PARIS WIFE envisions that same period from the point of view of Hemingway's wife, Hadley, as the young bride tangles with her author husband's newfound fame and his insatiable definitions of manhood. Lush with prominent literary figures from the scene, McLain's version presents dimensions of the experience beyond extravagant drinking and salon discussions, by inspecting sadnesses and disappointments that can accompany life so far from home.
Editors Note In Chicago in 1920, 28-year-old Hadley Richardson meets Ernest Hemingway. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris and become the golden couple in a lively group of expatriates, including Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and Gerald and Sara Murphy. But as Hadley struggles with self-doubt and jealousy, Ernest wrestles with his burgeoning writing career and both must confront a deception that could prove the undoing of one of the greatest romances in history.
