In November, we will be discussing The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. This is a fictional account of the 5 year marriage between Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley Richardson. They had a whirlwind romance and wedding then set sail to live in Paris in the glittering 1920's. A heartbreaking portrayal of love and broken loyalty. As we now know, Hemingway once said he wished he had died before loving anyone else other than Hadley. From the Washington Times Review, "That his first wife should have spent her adolescence in a home shadowed by depression and suicide before being married to the famed bad boy who later took his own life is intriguing. It immediately establishes one of the strengths of this book, which is its willingness to grapple with emotional complexity."
