Abstract

Evan Shipman, a writer and poet, met Hemingway in Paris in 1924 and eventually became the subject of one of the few chapters in A Moveable Feast where the protagonist is treated kindly. From the legendary 1920s to and through several wars and then home again over terrain more often rocky than not, the two men affected each other's lives. Different in many ways, they shared an enviable grace in the face of danger and a love of literature, art, and Paris. Hemingway, who may have lost as many friendships as he found, went all 15 rounds with this one. The relationship is traced through Shipman's letters to Hemingway from 1927 to 1950.
