The Paris Wife by Paula McLain p. 41

"I was desperate to get to Chicago again and see the big old room at Kenley's - the piano, the Victrola, the knobbly rug pushed aside for two people to dance. I wanted to look into a pair of impossibly clear brown eyes and know what that beautiful boy was thinking."

I was a little surprised she is calling Ernest Hemingway a "boy," but he was 21 and she was 29, so it's pretty accurate.

I've heard a lot of buzz about this book but I still have an intense aversion to Hemingway ever since the college literature course… :)
