The Breaking Point: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and the Murder of Jose Robles Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They had arrived in Spain as comrades, leftist writers-in-arms. But a real-life literary mystery unfolded when Dos Passos friend José Robles—a Spanish-born Johns Hopkins professor—disappeared. Written from a novelists eye for detail, The Breaking Point is the story of two lives at the intersection of friendship and murder, of love and death, and of literature and history.
