One title on the list:
A Moveable FeastRead about the other books on Pearson's list.
by Ernest Hemingway
Like Orson Welles, Hemingway never equalled the beginning of his career except here. A collection of essays about the time he spent in the Paris of the Twenties, the book sighs with love for the city, for the people he knew there and heartbreakingly for the person he used to be. Hemingway committed suicide before the book was published.
A Moveable Feast made Diana Souhami's top ten list of "books about Paris and London lesbians in the early 20th century" and Laura Landro's five best list of books about travel; it is a book to which Russell Banks always returns.
