June 2015 - 11. I finished Paula McClain's "The Paris Wife," a fictional but true-sounding account of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley Richardson Hemingway's life and marriage. I loved how it expressed many of the things we still talk about today when we talk about love and marriage, but from Hadley's eyes. I felt that I understood her, even though I would have loved her to have more of a backbone earlier on, though she does ultimately find one. She makes a brave move in the end, and seems to still have a good life. I also like Hemingway's side of the story, and how he worked so hard to become a literary great. The Fitzgeralds' popping into the story was a nice bonus, since I think Scott is a much better writer.
