Ernest Hemingway’s classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, now available in a restored edition, includes the original manuscript along with insightful recollections and unfinished sketches.
Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway’s most enduring works. Since Hemingway’s personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published.
Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest’s sole surviving son, and an introduction by grandson of the author, Seán Hemingway, editor of this edition, the book also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, and his first wife Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of literary luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Maddox Ford, and insightful recollections of Hemingway’s own early experiments with his craft.
Widely celebrated and debated by critics and readers everywhere, the restored edition of A Moveable Feast brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

‘As a public intellectual, I. A. Rehman devoted his whole life to the cause of oppressed classes. Besides campaigning against religious extremism and the violation of human rights, he actively participated in democratic movements, generating political consciousness in Pakistan and beyond. His work (and this memoir) is worth remembering in the days to come.’
Dr Mubarak Ali, Historian and Author.
‘This book is a testament to how a seemingly modest man lived and sneaked his way to the status of a legend.’
Amin Mughal, Scholar, Activist and Journalist.
‘As a young man, I. A. Rehman experienced the hopeful tumult of national liberation. For the next seven decades, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with all those who sought to keep the dream of decolonisation alive. This memoir is a must-read for young people on the left today, a reminder that revolutionary humanism can and must be sustained unflinchingly for as long as one lives.’
Aasim Sajjad Akhtar, Academic, Political Organiser and Author.
‘Rehman Sahib had the ability, like my father, to be at ease across generations. Witty, compassionate and a man with infinite patience, he would engage with unknown young people as much as his known contemporaries. What also astonished me was his ability to comment on the latest developments in art, poetry, theatre, medicine and constitutional law. His vision was far-reaching and always attendant to life around us. This memoir is a beautiful glimpse into the life of South Asia’s iconic thinker, journalist and activist.’
Salima Hashmi, Painter and Artist
‘I was introduced to I. A. Rahman by his associate and admirer and my good friend Amin Mughal. Rahman Sahib’s track record as a legendary human rights campaigner and eminent journalist had made me curious about him. His balanced and dispassionate analysis of politics in Pakistan was invaluable. Every time he visited London, a meeting with him was a must. He was the toast of Indian progressives and diplomats who had served in Islamabad. To obtain an insight into his fascinating life, lucidly told in his own words, is as refreshing as it was conversing with him.’
Ashis Ray, formerly editor-at-large of CNN

This volume is unique in the field of Calvin studies. George Tavard introduces readers to Calvin’s first theological writing, Psychopannychia (1534), showing why this little-known work is essential to understanding Calvin’s mature thought, including the “catholic” intent of his Reformation.
The only study of Psychopannychia Calvin’s first theological writing in English, this volume explores the content and purpose of Calvin’s early treatise, its development of themes that would later inform Calvin’s monumental Institutes, and the light the book sheds on Calvin’s deep catholicity.
Historically informed and ecumenically focused, this volume provides valuable insights into Reformation history and the continuing significance of Calvin’s thought for present-day ecumenical dialogue. ISBN: 0802847188 Publisher: EERDMANS Subtitle: Author: GEORGE H. TAVAND
