“That is what we are supposed to do when we are at our best — make it all up — but make it up so truly that later it will happen that way.” Hemingway

  1. Lovely quote! Did you read, The Paris Wife- Paula McLain? Hemmingway’s first wife, Hadley Richardson “narrates” this novel about their marriage.

    • I have to read that, one of my favorite books by Hemingway was his memoir of living in Paris in the 1920s, “A Moveable Feast,” in which he talks a lot about other writers, and speaks very little (if at all!) about his wife.
