The Paris Wife

Paula Walters - Friday, October 07, 2011

I just finished reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  This is the story of Hadley Richardson’s courtship and marriage to Ernest Hemingway.  Hadley was Hemingway’s first wife.  Since the marriage only lasted five years she is barely mentioned in his biographies, so Paula McLain felt compelled to write a novel about her time with him.  The novel takes place in Paris during the Jazz Age.  The Hemingway’s are part of the group known as the “Lost Generation” or the expatriates.  Some of the other people in the group included Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, Ezra Pound, Sherwood Anderson and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.  I have always been in awe of this group. This was a wild era and the young couple found themselves right in the middle of the craziness.  This is a different love story beautiful but also sad. I enjoyed the novel. I like reading historical fiction.  Now I want to reread some of  Hemingway’s novels, especially The Sun Also Rises.  He wrote this in the same time period and the characters in his novel are based on these friends.  I recommend this book especially if you are a Hemingway fan.
