Monday Night Book Club: The Paris Wife
by Abigail Fisher
Expatriate Ernest Hemingway will best be remembered for his pioneering literary style and stalwart novels. His first wife on the other hand is little more than a biographic footnote. Until reading Paula McLain’s The Paris Wife, I had no real consideration for the man behind the novels, much less the woman behind that man. His works themselves were ambiguous entities, miraculous conceptions rather than authored works. The Paris Wife opened my eyes to how literature is created through the life experience of an author, not simply cultured from random musings.
