The Paris WifeBook - 2011
A story told in the voice of Ernest Hemingway's first wife, Hadley. Meeting through mutual friends in Chicago, Hadley is intrigued by brash "beautiful boy" Ernest Hemingway, and after a brief courtship and small wedding, they take off for Paris, where Hadley makes a convincing transformation from an overprotected child to a game and brave young woman who puts up with impoverished living conditions and shattering loneliness to prop up her husband's career. Through her eyes and voice, we experience Paris of the Lost Generation and meet fascinating characters such as Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and Gerald and Sara Murphy.
