Description

After reading A Moveable Feast, aspiring novelist Enrique Vila-Matas moves to Paris to be closer to his literary idol, Ernest Hemingway. Surrounded by the writers, artists and eccentrics of '70s Parisian cafe culture, he dresses in black, buys two pairs of reading glasses, and smokes a pipe like Sartre. Now, in later life, he's reflecting on his youth while giving a three-day lecture on irony. And he's still convinced he looks likes Hemingway. Never Any End to Paris is a hilarious, playful novel about literature and the art of writing and how life never quite goes to plan.

Reviews

"Vila-Matas's touch is light and whimsical, while his allusions encompass a rogue's gallery of world literature" The Economist "The most important living Spanish author" Time Out New York
