From their first meeting in Paris in 1925, Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald maintained a complicated friendship born of mutual admiration, envy, and implicit rivalry. FRENCH CONNECTIONS is a collection of essays devoted to exploring the shared influence that these two legendary writers had on each other's work.

Hemingway and Fitzgerald once made a pact to write about each other and thereby ensure their mutual fame. In this book of scholarly essays, 17 critics write about both of these spoiled American geniuses, specifically throwing light on the influence each had on the other's writing--particularly during their Paris years (1925^-26 and 1929). The essays are conveniently divided into four sections: an overview of 1920s France and the budding relationship between the two writers; Hemingway in France, concentrating on his affinity with the denizens of the Left Bank; Fitzgerald living the Parisian high life, with its consequent literary influences that diverged from Hemingway's; and a grouping of various "intertextual" essays, in one of which, for instance, James Plath offers the somewhat startling opinion that The Sun Also Rises began as a deliberate parody of The Great Gatsby. A goldmine for buffs of these two great writers, with valuable research references after each essay. Allen Weakland
