“The Paris Wife”

Ernest and Hadley Hemingway on their wedding day, 1921

Several people had recommended “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain to me. Lo and behold, my sister sent me her hard back copy of the book leaving me no excuse not to check it out. The author is also a poet so the word choice is quite beautiful in this based- on-fact fictional account of Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley Richardson. My husband derisively said it looked like a chick lit book, but I countered by saying that literature lovers, fans of the movie “Midnight In Paris” as well as Paris aficionados will find much to delight in this best seller.
