Overview

Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald met in 1925, two weeks after the publication of The Great Gatsby, in the Dingo Bar in Paris. From that night on they maintained a complicated friendship born of mutual admiration, envy, and implicit rivalry. French Connections is a collection of thoughtful and often stirring essays devoted to exploring the shared influence that these two legendary writers had on each other’s work. The essayists examine the role of France, particularly Paris, in both writers’ bodies of work, and how their sustained contact with one another in France as opposed to the States determined the sometimes hilarious, sometimes resentful tenor of their relationship.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway first met in Paris in 1925, and France played an influential role in their writing, their personal relationship, and their lives. The idea for this book, and the source for 13 of its 17 essays, was the Hemingway/ Fitzgerald International Conference held in Paris in July 1994. The essays provide thoughtful insight into each writer's association with France and the impact France had on some of their characters. The collection is divided into four sections, beginning with "Overviews: Two American Writers in Paris," which establishes the background and focus of the volume. The subsequent sections devote attention to each writer individually and conclude with intertextual similarities between them. This book takes an interesting approach for students and readers of Hemingway and Fitzgerald. Recommended.--Cynde Bloom Lahey, New Canaan Lib., CT
