A Moveable Feast


A Moveable Feast

Few listeners are likely to remember what the real Ernest Hemingway sounded like, so it's hard to imagine many would take issue with John Bedford Lloyd as a convincing substitute. Everything one imagines Hemingway to be is present in Lloyd's performance: the rock-solid certainty of conviction, the passion toward cause and person, the hunger for experience, and the alertness to pain --- his own and that of others. These are Hemingway's newly edited remembrances of Paris in the 1920s, when his confidence as a writer soared and he was briefly satisfied as a young husband and father. It was also when his acquaintances included other literary lions: Joyce, Fitzgerald, Pound, and Gertrude Stein. With Lloyd ably filling in for the author, youth could hardly seem more intoxicating and full of promise.
