A Moveable Feast - The Review
Following the November 13 terrorist attacks on Paris, copies of Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast are selling out at 50 times the usual rate. The memoir has become a symbol of France's strength and beauty in the wake of the recent night of terror. Parisians have taken to leaving copies of Hemingway's famous love letter to the City of Lights among the flowers laid at memorials around the city. A Moveable Feast details Hemingway's experiences in Paris' bars and bistros, and Bloomberg notes that "people are reading the book in bars and cafes," after a year-old grandmother urged them to leave behind flowers and pick up copies in an interview with BFM. You can find pictures of their defiant merriment shared on social media with the hashtags tousaubistrot and jesuisenterrasse. This isn't the first time a book has become a vehicle for healing in Paris. After the shootings at Charlie Hebdo offices in January, Voltaire's Treatise on Tolerance saw a similar surge in popularity.

It remains one of the greatest love stories of the 20th century. Ernest Hemingway's memoir, A Moveable Feast, is a story of first love, and first love lost; a narrative that is ageless, not tethered to the bright lights and glitter of the twenties, or of today, or of tomorrow.
