wtf? the idiot grandson, who controls Hemingway’s literary heritage doesn’t like what Papa said about his grandmama. So his solution is to take a pair of scissors to the manuscript of a Movable Feast and remove the parts he doesn’t like and insert some other writings from he does. Which is nutty enough but the guy convinced Scribners to go along with this insane butchery. Scribners published the book originally furthering tinkering with the text because each Hemingway generation is nuttier than the last is just wrong. but don’t take my word for it:
Worth reading – Don’t Touch a Moveable Feast. the NYT Op-E piece from A.E. Hotchner, who of ALL people should be heard on this, calls to task this asshattery. If you ask me Scribners comes off as really fucking desperate.
