The fascination with Ernest Hemingway's years in Paris in the early 1920s seems to never die. Witness the sudden rise on bestseller lists across the country of "The Paris Wife," Paula McLain's novel narrated by the first of Hemingway's four wives, Hadley Richardson. She tells the story of their years together; 1920-27. Hemingway himself found these years fascinating — in 1956, thirty years after his marriage to Richardson had ended, the author found an old trunk full of notebooks from that time in storage at the Paris Ritz. He began stitching together a memoir that included a long apology to Richardson and was itself full of nostalgia and regret. Three years after his suicide in 1961 his then wife Mary edited and published that memoir, sans apology to Richardson; it was called "A Moveable Feast."
