Fact: Hemingway had a pretty sweet life. Ah! To live and write in Bohemian Paris of the Roaring Twenties! To sip absinthe in a cafe! To drink wine and have conversations with Joyce, Pound, and Sylvia Beach!

"Feast" is a diverting read, even if Hem devolves into dishing snarky gossip about beloved members of the literati. I checked this one out as a follow-up to "Midnight in Paris".

It's a decent book well worth reading for its passages on the craft of writing, but it's certainly not a life-changing masterpiece. I recommend "Feast" for all aspiring authors.
