A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
In the opening pages of this memoir about schmoozing with American expat authors in Paris, Hemingway warns his readers that they might be wise to read his stories as fiction. That's a nice way of saying, "I'm going to reveal some really juicy dirt on famous people." A Moveable Feast includes Hemingway's conversations with luminaries such as Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, and F. Scott Fitzgerald himself. It's also about how awesome it is to spend your days eating French food, drinking wine, and shooting the breeze with geniuses. We think we could probably get the hang of that too.
