Ernest Hemingway was a man of the world: the Caribbean, Africa, America and Europe all hosted him at one point or another, but no location is as stronglyly associated with the writer as Paris. Hemingway moved to Paris with his first wife, Hadley, in 1921. The young couple lived in a sparse apartment on the rue Cardinale Lemoine in Paris' 5th arrondissement with no running water and a bathroom that consisted of little more than a bucket. Hemingway rented another space, at 39 rue Descartes to do his writing. In Paris, the Hemingways got acquainted with other ex-pats living in the city. Composing the famous "Lost Generation," these artists, including Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, Picasso and James Joyce, became central to Hemingway's growth as a writer. The couple left Paris in 1923, when Hadley discovered she was pregnant with their first child. After giving birth in Toronto, the couple brought their baby back to Paris in January of 1924. This second life in Paris was Hemingway's most prolific creative periods, during which he wrote works such as The Sun Also Rises and Men Without Women. In 1927, Hadley divorced Hemingway after discovering his affair with Pauline Pfeiffer, a fashion reporter. Hemingway and Pfeiffer married only a few months later and left Paris for Key West the following year.
