En amerikan i Paris

Det är mycket Paris nu.

Naturligtvis var jag tvungen att kombinera Sylvia Beach med Ernest Hemingway. Även hen skrev långt senare en memoarbok om sin ljuva ungdom i Paris, A Moveable Feast.

Samma tid, samma plats, bitvis samma människor. Men avsevärt tråkigare. Det här är det första jag läst av Hemingway, och hans stil gav ingen direkt mersmak. Hen lånar böcker av Sylvia och ser naturligtvis Aleister Crowley på trottoaren. I övrigt dissar hen Gertrude Stein (efter ett tag), dricker vin, diskuterar litteratur och redogör tråkigt för sina turer till kapplöpningsbanan.

Och umgås med Fitzgeralds, förstås.
För att ansluta till Sylvias lakoniska citat om paret Fitzgerald i förra inlägget måste jag trots allt citera Hemingways märkligt suggestiva beskrivning av Scott:

Scott was a man then who looked like a boy with a face between handsome and pretty. He had very fair wavy hair, a high forehead, excited and friendly eyes and a delicate long-lipped Irish mouth that, on a girl, would have been the mouth of a beauty. His chin was well built and he had good ears and a handsome, almost beautiful, unmarked nose. This should not have added up to a pretty face, but that came from the colouring, the very fair hair and the mouth. The mouth worried you until you knew him and then it worried you more.

that ӏ'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
