Hemingway Gets Wright Treatment

paris wife.jpgRecent years saw two books--The Women, by TC Boyle, and Loving Frank, by Nancy Horan--focus on the women in Frank Lloyd Wright's life. Now the former Mrs. Hemingway is getting her say in fictional form. In The Paris Wife, Paula McLain crafts the story of Hadley Richardson's marriage to Ernest Hemingway and tells it from Hadley's point of view. Jacket Copy reports on the book and the New York Times offers their review, calling McLain's Hadley a "Mrs. Gatsby...hardly more than a stereotype."
