This 2006 recording is the closest we can get to time-traveling back to Paris in the 1920s, a place where great art, beautiful women, and literary lions like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and Ezra Pound compete for the attention of an ambitious young Hemingway. Narrator James Naughton guides the reader with a relaxed cadence and a nonjudgmental tone through a series of colorful vignettes and fascinating insights, bringing just the right mix of confidence and warmth--yes, this is one of the few works of Hemingway with warmth, as well as affection and humor. This is a wonderful way to rediscover the man who altered twentieth-century literature. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
