Sadly the little apartment Hemingway shared with his first wife, Hadley, and their son Bumby is long gone. However, according to an American blogger living in Paris, a secret passage from the expat heyday is still there. Hemingway describes the shortcut in A Moveable Feast, by writing that he walked out of his apartment and often cut into the back door of a boulangerie as a shortcut up to the main drag – Blvd. Montparnasse. Fun fact: As an homage to the literary legend, someone painted an image of Hemingway on the back door of the boulangerie that you can still see today.
