The Paris Wife, by Paula McLainLearn about the other entries on the list.
Based on the romance and marriage of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife, Hadley, there’s no way this sordid tale could end up as anything but ache, passion, booze, and more and bigger ache. It may be set in Paris, but this window into the disintegration of a burning love is just a jukebox shy of a honky-tonk tearjerker straight out the mouth of Tammy Wynette.
Oh, it ain’t always glamourous to be the first wife/Especially when the man is Hemingway/He drinks all night and day/What is happiness anyway?/Who’s that woman in my bed—is this my life?
The Paris Wife is also one of Wai Chee Dimock's five top books on Hemingway in Paris and made Kirkus Reviews list of the best historical fiction titles of 2011.
