Paris is a Party. That’s what Hemingway’s memoir about living in Paris is called in French. But today this little autobiography has taken on a new meaning in the City of Light after the most recent terrorist attacks.
I meant to post something about this a while back, but didn’t get to it until now. Basically, Parisians have been buying up Hemingway’s book like crazy and leaving copies of it all around Paris as a symbol of hope and solidarity against the forces of evil and terror. In my opinion, that’s a pretty rad way for art to influence life and fight the good fight for liberty and goodness all at once.
I bet Hemingway would be proud.
So what books have had a profound impact on the way you see the world? What stories continue to inspire you and give you hope?
