NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? ´´A beautiful portrait of being in Paris in the glittering 1920s-as a wife and as one´s own woman.´´-Entertainment Weekly A deeply evocative story of ambition and betrayal, The Paris Wife captures the love affair between two unforgettable people: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY People ? Chicago Tribune ? NPR ? The Philadelphia Inquirer ? Kirkus Reviews ? The Toronto Sun ? BookPage Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet twenty-eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness-until she meets Ernest Hemingway. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group-the fabled ´´Lost Generation´´-that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Though deeply in love, the Hemingways are ill prepared for the hard-drinking, fast-living, and free-loving life of Jazz Age Paris. As Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history and pours himself into the novel that will become The Sun Also Rises, Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self as her roles as wife, friend, and muse become more challenging. Eventually they find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage-a deception that will lead to the unraveling of everything they´ve fought so hard for. A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty, The Paris Wife is all the more poignant because we know that, in the end, Hemingway wrote that he would rather have died than fallen in love with anyone but Hadley. Praise for The Paris Wife ´´McLain smartly explores Hadley´s ambivalence about her role as supportive wife to a budding genius.... Women and book groups are going to eat up this novel.´´ -USA Today ´´Written much in the style of Nancy Horan´s Loving Frank ... Paula McLain´s fictional account of Hemingway´s first marriage beautifully captures the sense of despair and faint hope that pervaded the era and their marriage.´´ -Associated Press ´´Lyrical and exhilarating . . . McLain offers a raw and fresh look at the prolific Hemingway. In this mesmerizing and helluva-good-time novel, McLain inhabits Richardson´s voice and guides us from Chicago-Richardson and Hemingway´s initial stomping ground-to the place where their life together really begins: Paris.´´ -Elle

Beautiful Losers
10,49 € *

One of the best-known experimental novels of the 1960s, this uninhibited tale centres on the hapless members of a love triangle, and their sexual obsession and shared fascination with a mythic saint. Revolving around four central -- and intrinsically flawed -- characters, ´Beautiful Losers´ is the frank and humorous story of a nameless narrator, his wife Edith, their domineering friend and mentor ´F´ and Catherine Tekakwitha, a mythic 17th-century Mohawk virgin saint. The complexities of this three-way love, pain and lust are sent spiralling by the death of Edith and ´F´ at the novel´s start, leading the damaged narrator to question the nature of love, sexuality and spirituality in a series of explicit flashbacks. The extraordinary and inimitable singer-songwriter´s classic novel, this is Leonard Cohen´s most critically acclaimed literary work, echoing the dark poetry and wry humour of his timeless songs of loss, love, sex and religion. Not just an extremely funny novel, but an incredibly original and explicit examination of friendship, sex and spirituality
