Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost (Vintage) by Paul Hendrickson
Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost (Vintage)

MarleeM, January 2, 2013

As someone who has read a lot of Hemingway and a lot of biographies, I was not ready to be impressed by this book. But I was. It is a truly unconventional biography, reading Hemingway's life through the lenses of his boat and his relationship with the water. The research is astounding, but it doesn't read like an stiff academic work. It flows as if someone is telling you a story of a very good friend. Who had a very interesting life.
