Here, too, is an evocation of the Paris that Hemingway knew as a young man - a map drawn in his distinct prose of the streets and cafes and bookshops that comprised the city in which he, as a young writer, sometimes struggling against the cold and hunger of near poverty, honed the skills of his craft. A Moveable Feast is at once an elegy to the remarkable group for expatriates that gathered in Paris during the twenties and a testament to the risks and rewards of the writerly life.

It would come in one day when the fall was over.
Gerry Brenner, a literary scholar at the University of Montana , and other researchers have examined Hemingway's notes and initial drafts of A Moveable Feast, which are in the collection of Ernest Hemingway's personal papers opened to the public in , following the completion of the John F. Kennedy Library , where they are held in Boston. He concluded that some of her changes were misguided and that others derived from questionable motives.
The chapter titled "Birth of a New School", which Hemingway had dropped from his draft, was reinserted by Mary.
Brenner alleges the most serious change was the deletion of Hemingway's lengthy apology to Hadley , his first wife. This apology appeared in various forms in every draft of the book. Brenner suggests that Mary deleted it because it impugned her own role as wife.
In contrast, A. Hotchner has said that he received a near final draft of A Moveable Feast and that the version Mary Hemingway published is essentially the draft he had read in Therefore, in his view, the original publication is the version that Hemingway intended, and Mary Hemingway did not revise or add chapters on her own initiative, but simply carried out Ernest's intentions.

The tank wagons were painted brown and saffron color and in the moonlight when they worked the rue Cardinal Lemoine their wheeled, horse-drawn cylinders looked like Braque paintings. All of the sadness of the city came suddenly with the first cold rains of winter, and there were no more tops to the high white houses as you walked but only the wet blackness of the street and the closed doors of the small shops, the herb sellers, the stationery and the newspaper shops, the midwife—second class—and the hotel where Verlaine had died where I had a room on the top floor where I worked.
It was either six or eight flights up to the top floor and it was very cold and I knew how much it would cost for a bundle of small twigs, three wire-wrapped packets of short, half-pencil length pieces of split pine to catch fire from the twigs, and then the bundle of half-dried lengths of hard wood that I must download to make a fire that would warm the room.
So I went to the far side of the street to look up at the roof in the rain and see if any chimneys were going, and how the smoke blew.
There was no smoke and I thought about how the chimney would be cold and might not draw and of the room possibly filling with smoke, and the fuel wasted, and the money gone with it, and I walked on in the rain.
The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write. I was writing about up in Michigan and since it was a wild, cold, blowing day it was that sort of day in the story. I had already seen the end of fall come through boyhood, youth and young manhood, and in one place you could write about it better than in another. That was called transplanting yourself, I thought, and it could be as necessary with people as with other sorts of growing things.
