Having loved A Moveable Feast, I couldn't wait to read the story from Hadley's point of view, or at least Paula McLain's version of it. So, if you haven't already figured it out, The Paris Wife is about Hadley Richardson, Ernest Hemingway's first wife and therefore it is a given that this is a tragedy. McLain does a great job of making us care about Hadley, of course, but also Hem, a tortured soul himself who seemed to not be able to help destroying his relationships with those he loved and relied on. Read both books for some wonderful writing about characters.
