Teaser Tuesdays: A Moveable Feast

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

From Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, The Restored Edition, page 163.

“Forget what Zelda said,” I told him. “Zelda is crazy. There’s nothing wrong with you. Just have the confidence and do what the girl wants. Zelda just wants to destroy you.”

I swear I honestly just came to this part in the book! I didn’t go looking for a part including Fitzgerald and certainly not this section of the book.

I am LOVING this book and really wish that someone had encouraged me to read it before now. I had no idea that Hemingway could write like this.

One response to “Teaser Tuesdays: A Moveable Feast

  1. I am so glad you are enjoying it! I have a fascination with Hemingway’s works and A Moveable Feast is my favorite! I had so many post-it notes throughout the book of passages that I liked – when I reviewed it last year, it was hard for me to finish it, because I knew that once my review was done, my time with the book would be sort of over, you know? I then found http://www.thehemingwayproject.com which is one woman’s study of Hadley after she read A Moveable Feast, and now I also want to read “The Paris Wife,” by Paula McClain, too. Have fun with it all, I’m jealous! I’d love to go back and experience A Moveable Feast for the first time again!!
