A superb recommendation
- Book: The Paris Wife
- Location: Europe, North America, Paris
- Author: Paula McLain
The book has several locations and some are hugely evocative – the South of France and the bull running in Pamplona, particularly, and there is Schruns in Austria, Northern Italy, and of course Paris. It is the story of the passion that Hemingway and Hadley find in the early years of their relationship and how it disintegrates over time and how tormented he is and how she supports him – Paula McLain has a lovely way of writing and turns of phrases which really capture the feel the roaring 1920s and “the Set”. Hugely good read!!!
