May, 2011: A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

(Book #13) This meeting was supposed to be at my house, but we held it at Le Bouchon instead. It wasn’t a great idea because it isn’t easy to talk at a table for eight when there is noise all around you as well. But the amazing French bistro food, the noise and the hubbub was the perfect environment for the book! We talked about the beautiful imagery, the idea of so many talented and creative people intersecting in such a casual way, and the embarrassing details he casually revealed about other writers. Another moment that caught our attention is when he mentions his ability of seeing the “seeds of trouble” in someone, when he would later take his own life.
