know or think we know who Ernest Hemingway was a brilliant writer full of macho swagger, driven to take on huge feats of bravery and a pitcher or two of martinis before lunch But beneath this man or myth, or some combination of the two, is another Hemingway, one weve never seen before Hadley Richardson, Hemingways first wife, is the perfect person to reveal him to us and also to immerse us in the incredibly exciting and volatile world of Jazz age Paris.The idea to write in Hadleys voice came to me as I was reading Hemingways memoir, A Moveable Feast, about his early years in Paris In the final pages, he writes of Hadley, I wished I had died before I ever loved anyone but her That line, and his portrayal of their marriage so tender and poignant and steeped in regret inspired me to search out biographies of Hadley, and then to research their brief and intense courtship and letters they wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of delicious pages to another I couldnt help but fall in love with Hadley, and through her eyes, with the young Ernest Hemingway He was just twenty when they met, handsome and magnetic, passionate and sensitive and full of dreams I was surprised at how much I liked and admired him and before I knew it, I was entirely swept away by their gripping love story.I hope you will be as captivated by this remarkable couple as I am and by the fascinating world of Paris in the 20s, the fast living, ardent and tremendously driven Lost Generation.A Look Inside The Paris Wife Ernest and Hadley Hemingway, Chamby, Switzerland, winter 1922 Ernest and Hadley Hemingway on their wedding day, 1921 Ernest, Hadley, and Bumby, Schruns, Austria, 1925 The Hemingways and friends at a cafe in Pamplona, Spain Guest Reviewer Helen Simonson on The Paris Wife Helen Simonson is the New York Times bestselling author of Major Pettigrews Last Stand She was born in England and spent her teenage years in a small village in East Sussex A graduate of the London School of Economics and former travel advertising executive, she has lived in America for the past two decades After many years in Brooklyn, she now lives with her husband and two sons in the Washington, D.C., area.Paula McLain has taken on the task of writing a story most of us probably think we already know that of a doomed starter wife To make life difficult, McLain proposes to tell us about Ernest Hemingways first wife, Hadley Richardson, who is a twenty eight year old Midwestern spinster when she marries the twenty one year old unpublished, but already cocksure writer and runs off to Paris with him The talent and joy of this novel is that McLain does a startling job of making us understand this as a great love story and seducing us into caring deeply, about both Ernest and Hadley, as their marriage eventually comes apart.This novel moves beyond the dry bones of biography or skewed personal vision of memoir, and takes a leap into the emotional lives of these characters It is a leap of faith for those readers who think they know Hemingway, but McLains voice sticks close enough to historical material, and to the words and tone of Hemingways own writing, to be convincing She had me at the description of young Hadleys father committing suicide.The carpets had been cleaned but not changed out for new, the revolver had been emptied and polished and placed back in his desk.Hadley is also crippled by a childhood fall and trapped into spinsterhood by her mothers declining health and eventual death By the time she meets Hemingway, we are rooting for her to make a break for foreign shores even as we understand the danger of marrying a tempestuous man Hemingway is all nervous purpose, ambition and charisma as he meets Hadley and is drawn to her quiet strength and ordinary American sweetness In his youth and uncertainty, she is his rock and yet we already suspect that as he grows in artistic power, she will become an unwanted anchor Through Hadleys eyes and plain speaking voice, we see all of twenties Paris and the larger than life artists who gather in the cafes We drink tea with Gertrude Stein and champagne with Fitzgerald and Zelda We run with the bulls in Pamplona and spend winters in alpine chalets And we see, through her love for him, the young writer becoming the Hemingway of legend Perhaps it is the nature of all great artists to be completely selfish and obnoxious, but Hadleys voice is always one of compassion Even as Hemingway leaves her completely out of The Sun also Rises, even as Hemingway publicly flirts with other women, she continues to explain and defend him It is a testament to Paula McLain that the reader is slow to dislike Hemingway, even as he slowly and inexorably betrays Hadleys trust.I loved this novel for its depiction of two passionate, yet humanly flawed people struggling against impossible odds poverty, artistic fervor, destructive friendships to cling on to each other I raise a toast to Paula McLains sure talent.History is sadly neglectful of the supporting players in the lives of great artists Fortunately, fiction provides ample opportunity to bring these often fascinating personalities out into the limelight Gaynor Arnold successfully resurrected the much maligned Mrs Charles Dickens in Girl in a Blue Dress 2009 , now Paula McLain brings Hadley Richardson Hemingway out from the formidable shadow cast by her famous husband Though doomed, the Hemingway marriage had its giddy high points, including a whirlwind courtship and a few fast and furious years of the expatriate lifestyle in 1920s Paris Hadley and Ernest traveled in heady company during this gin soaked and jazz infused time, and readers are treated to intimate glimpses of many of the literary giants of the era, including Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and F Scott Fitzgerald But the real star of the story is Hadley, as this time around, Ernest is firmly relegated to the background as he almost never was during their years together Though eventually a woman scorned, Hadley is able to acknowledge without rancor or bitterness that Hem had helped me to see what I really was and what I could do Much than a woman behind the man homage, this beautifully crafted tale is an unsentimental tribute to a woman who acted with grace and strength as her marriage crumbled Margaret Flanagan Naughty Redhead Wife Paris
