Sadie Jones on Hemingway's Moveable Feast.

Sadie Jones writes about A Moveable Feast in The Independent.

What really caught my eye was this bit:
I think that A Moveable Feast taught me everything I know about writing, and I can't hope to attain everything it could teach me. There are lessons in the actual language, which is beautiful, and there are lessons in the insight into his writer's brain, and the understanding of the fragility of the balance between being able to do it, and not being able to do it. He is writing about the joy of getting it right, with all the unspoken knowledge of the sadness of getting it wrong, both in writing and life.
As if we needed more reasons to read Hemingway!
