Hadley Richardson and Ernest Hemingway were the golden couple of Paris in the twenties, the center of an expatriate community boasting the likes of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, and James and Nora Joyce. In this haunting account of the young Hemingways, Gioia Diliberto explores their passionate courtship, their family life in Paris with baby Bumby, and their thrilling, adventurous relationship--a literary love story scarred by Hadley's loss of the only copy of Hemingway's first novel, and ultimately destroyed by a devastating mnage trois on the French Riviera. Compelling, illuminating, poignant, and deeply insightful, Paris Without End provides a rare, intimate glimpse of the writer who so fully captured the American imagination and the remarkable woman who inspired his passion and his art--the only woman Hemingway never stopped loving.… (més)

Diliberto takes a more romantic view of the Hemingway marriage than I do. But this book remains indispensable if you have any interest in Hemingway's first wife. If you are tempted to read [b:The Paris Wife|8683812|The Paris Wife|Paula McLain|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320545874s/8683812.jpg|13556031], read this instead. ( )

Having read "The Paris Wife" by Paula McLain recently, I became intrigued by Hadley Richardson and her life. In this biography (which Paula McLain relied on heavily as research for her fictional book), Gioia Diliberto traces the life of Hadley from her birth to her death. Although she was only married to Hemingway for five years before they separated, much of the book focuses on this relationship. It's a fascinating account not just of Hadley and Hemingway, but of an era, a place and a stellar cast of characters who provide a vivid backdrop to the main story.

It's a book that can be read on many levels. It's claimed that Hadley was the inspiration for many of Hemingway's female characters and that his perception of love and romance was fundamentally shaped by their marriage, despite its brevity. It's also a look at a time when women were becoming increasingly independent and while Hadley was the woman behind the great man, the assumption that women in literature and the other arts should be relegated to the role of wife or muse was being questioned.

The facts of the book have been meticulously researched and rely on many sources, including interviews with those who knew the characters personally, including their son Jack, and many letters. The author has done a brilliant job at bringing all the facts and characters to vivid life and it's as absorbing (if not more so) than the fictional account. She has managed to round out the character of Hadley far more fully than Paula McLain and the account of this woman who some say was responsible for precipitating Hemingway's fledgling career onto its eventually illustrious path, is compelling reading.

I've read a lot of books about Ernest Hemingway, and none of them show him a a particularly favorable light.This book that focuses on his relationship with his first wife, Hadley, however, does a fairly good job at assessing the demons he dealt with & his ultimate regret at how he treated his fist wife.

If you've read The Paris Wife this is a good non-fiction follow-up to see how the story ends. ( )

The Alton Midnight Special gasped and sputtered out of Union Station, then rumbled through the red brick northside of St. Louis, Missouri, and out into the open country. (Introduction)
Elizabeth Hadley Richardson grew up in the bosom of upper-class St. Louis, a society whose stiff Victorian manners were starting to creak under turn-of-the-century industrialism.
