Paris é uma Festa encontra-se na linha da melhor tradição de Hemingway. A visão a um tempo lúcida e desencantada da vida, ombreando paradoxalmente com a confiança e a plenitude dos anos de criação, o retrato objetivo de muitos dos grandes escritores da nossa época que, como ele, respiravam no ar de Paris o melhor estímulo de aprendizagem e formação, a evocação dessa cidade incomparável, com os seus bistros, os seus velhos castanheiros, os cais, os boulevards, as pontes, imprimem a Paris é uma Festa um lirismo saudoso e pungentemente dramático. Aí encontramos o jovem Hem, no começo de uma carreira que se ignorava se terminaria na ignomínia ou na glória. Aí o encontramos, de algibeiras vazias e a cabeça povoada de sonhos, atento aos mais simples prazeres da vida. Aí o encontramos, ainda moço e rebelde, pronto a invadir o mundo e a sacudi-lo com os abalos da sua rebeldia genial.

I liked this book. Hemingway did a good job of writing a series of interesting chapters, each of which had something unique in it. In addition, I enjoyed his well written descriptions. While I have no intention of becoming an artist, this book gave me some insight into the lives of artists.more
This was an enjoyable read. I'm partial to books about Paris, but it was also interesting to imagine all these old, legendary writers, romping around town.more
I honestly didn't expect to like this as much as I did. I know Hemingay isn't everybody's cup of tea, but apparently he's exactly my cup of tea. Yay!!more
Man, I always forget how much I love Hemingway until I start reading one of his great works. Some of the prose in this is just amazing. I forgave him for the moments of complete self indulgence because it was so easy to get wrapped up in the romance of it all. Mmmm...Hemingway.more

It's still hard for me to fully enjoy Hemingway, especially with reading the Paris Wife alongside this. However, it's a very specific picture he paints of Paris and his writing, and I can appreciate and respect that.more
It's official. I'm a gossip whore. Try as I might to deny it, I love hearing the dirt on other people. It should come as no surprise then that my favorite sections of this books were about Hemingway's relationships with Gertrude Stein and (especially) F. Scott Fitzgerald. Holy crap, who knew Hemingway was a gossip whore too? The man can really dish it out. I'm embarrassingly unfamiliar with the Stein christened "Lost Generation" though, so I don't know whether to take what he says with a grain or with a boulder of salt. All I know is it made for very compelling reading. It also made me want to reread The Great Gatsby (which I did not appreciate when I read it 15 years ago in high school) and other works by Fitzgerald, as well as more biographical works written about that generation of writers, poets, and artists.

I'm ashamed to say that the only other Hemingway I've read was The Old Man and the Sea. I'm now very eager to pick up some of his novels. I think A Farewell to Arms will be first, and it will be soon.more
