Reader recommendation: The Paris Wife

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


I am so wrapped up in The Paris Wife by Paula McClain. It is the love story of Ernest Hemingway and his first wife Hadley Richardson. The writer is so clever in her breathless way that I am almost convinced that Hadley is confiding in me. She fears the future and change as the fast life of Paris's 1920s artist colony is erupting.
