Advance Praise:

"H.R. Stoneback knows his Hemingway and his Paris. I had the incomparable experience of visiting Paris twice while working for Ernest Hemingway in 1959. I viewed the city at the side of the writer while he added the finishing touches to A Moveable Feast. Professor Stoneback's evocation of Hemingway's Paris of the 1920s is as close as I have come since to reliving those Paris days in the company of Ernest Hemingway. Reading this book will be a treat for all who love Hemingway and Paris, and a pleasant surprise for all readers."
- Valerie Hemingway, author of Running with the Bulls: My Years with the Hemingways

"H.R. Stoneback's intense reading of Hemingway's Parisrevealing Hemingway's nuanced rendering of the deus loci and his intentionally subtle infusion of numinosityis nothing short of nonpareil. Stoneback's work undoes decades of weak and negative criticism of Hemingway. Read this classic piecea benchmark in the creative essayand you will see exactly how and why Hemingway's Paris became Stoneback's Paris and by extension your Paris. Stoneback's Hemingway's Paris: Our Paris? shows, ever so illustratively and ever so doucement, how and why we read Hemingway."
Allen Josephs, past president of the Hemingway Foundation and Society, and author of Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida

"No one has written better or more wisely about Ernest Hemingway’s Paris than H.R. Stoneback."
– Donald Junkins, author of Late at Night in the Rowboat, Journey to the Corrida, Playing for Keeps, Crossing By Ferry and other books
