A Hemingway to Remember

Or, how to appreciate Hemingway in one easy step--Shelf Love reviews A Moveable Feast.  For much of my life I have not been a Hemingway fan--one thing or another disturbed me about the writing and the style.  But of recent date I have engaged once again with Hemingway and have discovered, once again, how my blind prejudices and theories had deprived me of the great pleasure of acquaintance with a master writer.  Too often typified as "macho" or "ham-fisted", unsubtle, and unnuanced--one who holds these views would do well to read A Moveable Feast and then reconsider the first novel--The Sun Also Rises.
