I was 22-years-old when I first read Earnest Hemingway’s posthumous memoir about first forays into writing fiction in Paris in the 1920s. Three years later I carried a battered copy of the book with me when I visited Paris for the first time. I sat in the same cafes and walked the same streets. I still have my original copy of the book, now patched, yellowed and dog-eared. Whenever I pick it up, I cannot shake the urge to write. I can picture myself in Paris, ordering a half-carafe of white wine and a dozen oysters before sharpening my pencils and opening my blue-backed notebook. Buy the book here.
