"A bittersweetmodern love story [that] reads as easily as a novel." --Vogue

Hemingway'screative influences for novels like The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell toArms, and The Old Man and the Sea came not only from his famoushunting trips, his liaisons in Cuba, or his relationships with Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce and other Lost Generation writers. DuringHemingway's period of greatest literary foment, his most seminal relationshipwas with Hadley Richardson, his first wife. In Paris Without End, acclaimed author Gioia Diliberto, biographer of Jane Addams and Brenda Frazier, delivers a gripping, novelisticexploration of Hadley's personality and her role in Hemingway's life, finally unclouding our view of Hemingway's relationship with theone woman he never stopped loving.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Paris Without End: The True Story of Hemingway's First Wife, Gioia Diliberto, Hadley Richardson and Ernest Hemingway were the golden couple of Paris in the twenties, the center of an expatriate community boasting the likes of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, and James and Nora Joyce. In this haunting account of the young Hemingways, Gioia Diliberto explores their passionate courtship, their family life in Paris with baby Bumby, and their thrilling, adventurous relationship--a literary love story scarred by Hadley's loss of the only copy of Hemingway's first novel and ultimately destroyed by a devastating menage a trois on the French Riviera.Compelling, illuminating, poignant, and deeply insightful, Paris Without End provides a rare, intimate glimpse of the writer who so fully captured the American imagination and the remarkable woman who inspired his passion and his art--the only woman Hemingway never stopped loving.
