While looking for pictures to use in the review section, I found this:

Annotations on Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast which contain page references, links to youtube clips, photos and extra quotations.

It’s quite simply extraordinary.

I know Ernest Hemingway is passé and a lot of people bag him and/or his writing but if anyone wanted a taster, A Moveable Feast is wonderful; it’s slim, it’s easy to read and it really captures the life back of ex-pat writers and artists living cheap in Paris (!) and doing their thing. It’s got Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, James Joyce and of course F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fascinating for anyone interested in Paris in the ’20s, writing, Hemingway.
