The Paris Wife - Paula McLain WHY: before my current obsession with domestic fiction, memoirs, and diaries of 1920-50 Britain (and some US), I read everything I could get my hands on about and by ex-pats of the 1920's in France (and some N. Africa). This brings me back to that, and I can hardly wait to read it. Fictional memoir of that time from the perspective of Hemingway's first wife, Hadley.
