Publisher Comments:

From Chicago to Key West, Cuba to Kenya, Michael Palin takes us around the world in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway.

With his signature wit and indomitable style, bestselling author Michael Palin sets out to explore the rich and vivid territory of Hemingway's life. Inspired by the legendary writer's apetite for travel, Palin experiences Hemingway's fondness for the adventure-filled life firsthand, be it bull-running in Pamplona, fishing for marlin in the Gulf Stream, or drinking daiquiris in Havana. Driven by a fascination for discovering new places and for learning more about a remarkable and complex man, Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure is a unique travelogue and biography of this American hero, whose life and work left an indelible impression on the fast-fading twentieth century.
