Having read Hemingway's A Moveable Feast and Diliberto's Paris Without End, I was pretty familiar with the story of Hemingway and his first wife Hadley Richardson. But it's an engaging story, certainly good enough for fiction so I was curious what McLain would make of it.

I would say she did very well. There is dialogue and there are events that she probably invented, although I wouldn't know how much might have been recorded in letters, etc. Still, even if you knew more or less what happened in that relationship, this fictional account of it is very believable -- that it to say, she doesn't put in anything that you know is just plain wrong and that would put you off. I hate when writers of historical fiction do that.

In fact, her relaying the story of the first Hemingway marriage through Hadley's voice is compelling and believable. You don't come out of it necessarily hating Hemingway's guts, as one might very well do upon reading a factual account of his betrayal of Hadley. No, you see it through her eyes and her eyes were very forgiving. She managed to get on with her life, and from all accounts, had a far happier life than Hemingway did with a very successful second marriage. But I don't think she ever hated Heminway and seemed to be able to sympathize with him throughout her ordeal and later throughout her life. ( )

The Paris Wife is the story of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley. They lived in Paris for most of their marriage. They were friends with many of the writers who were popular in the 1920's. Even though it is fiction the author chose to stay true to events of their lives during their marriage. For most of their time together Ernest was an unknown. He was trying to sell his first book. They lived rather simply and traveled to much of Europe. If you are interested in the Jazz Age and the writers of the 20's this would be an enjoyable read. ( )

Loved this book! It's one of my favorite historical time periods and I LOVE the Lost Generation. Definitely recommend! ( )
  kbountress | Jan 23, 2024 |
Through the eyes of Hadley Richardson, Hemmingway's first wife, McLean gives the reader a look into jazz age Paris prior to WWI, its cafe society, and some of the anarchists and American ex-pats who were a part of that scene. ( )

I probably finished this a few weeks ago, had to set it aside for library books to read. It was very good, I knew very little about Ernest H's life. Although fiction, it still gave a good glimpse into their lifestyle and relationships, which I found interesting, and also depressing.

Paula McLain has built “The Paris Wife” around Hadley. Or at least she has planted Hadley in the midst of a lot of famous, ambitious people. The advantage to this technique is that it allows the reader to rub shoulders and bend elbows with celebrated literary types: the stay-at-home way of feeling like the soigné figure on the book cover. The drawback is that Ms. McLain’s Hadley, when not in big-league company that overshadows her, isn’t a subtly drawn character. She’s thick, and not just in physique. She’s slow on the uptake, and she can be a stodgy bore.

Indeed, this book is a more risky affair than its sometimes sugary surface betrays. Taking up the Hemingway story inevitably means comparisons with Papa himself, and McLain courageously draws fire by including interludes written from his perspective: hard-bitten monologues with such lines as "You might as well bring yourself down and make yourself stinking sick with all you do because this is the only world there is." It's not exactly up there with John Cheever's classic parody, but it certainly does the job.

An appealing companion volume to A Moveable Feast, then, but once it's finished, turn back to the original, with its cool, impressionistic prose. It can hardly be said that the least interesting thing about Hemingway is the way he lived his life, but let's not forget that it's his writing that endures.

An imaginative, elegantly written look inside the marriage of Ernest Hemingway and Hadley Richardson.
adicionado por Shortride | editarKirkus Reviews (Jan 15, 2011)
 
Colorful details of the expat life in Jazz Age Paris, combined with the evocative story of the Hemingways' romance, result in a compelling story that will undoubtedly establish McLain as a writer of substance. Highly recommended for all readers of popular fiction.

The Paris Wife, McLain has taken their love story, partially told by Hemingway himself in A Moveable Feast, and fashioned a novel that's impossible to resist. It's all here, and it all feels real...
