The Paris Wife by Paula McLain


I loved this novel about the courtship, marriage, and divorce of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley Richardson. I thought the writing was beautiful and unique, paying homage to Hadley, who is often called Hemingway’s “favourite” wife. McLain also vividly contrasts lush 1920’s Paris with the impoverished couple. I have a soft spot for that time and its writing, which is an integral part of this novel’s story.
