Flipping through the pages of this book immediately transports you to the windswept streets of Paris during wintertime, and I feel as though I am emanating the cold winter air with Hemingway himself. Not only do these enthralling photographs make you want to pack your bags and set our to Paris without any disinclination, but they also act as a lens in which you're seeing Paris through Hemingway's eyes during the 1920's. This book will act as my companion, or my Hadley, if you will, for whenever I'll visit Paris with the hopes of getting everything out of the city that Hemingway and Robert Wheeler did.
