Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir

by

Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together from New York to Paris to Spain, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, ran with the bulls in Pamplona—and once Hotchner even masqueraded as a matador and Hemingways manager in an actual bullfight. Everywhere they went, they talked. For fourteen years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the twenties, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down. His notes on the many occasions he spent with his friend Papa—in Venice and Rome, in Key West, on the Riviera, and in Ketchum, Idaho, where Hemingway died by his own hand in 1961—provide the material for this utterly profound, and truthfully compassionate best-selling memoir about the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. With a new introduction by the author and with never before published photographs from his personal collection, Papa Hemingway is a mesmerizing portrait.

Book News Annotation:

In this combination memoir and biography, Hotchner recounts his travels with Hemingway between 1948 and 1961 in New York, Key West, Paris, Spain, Cuba, and Ketchum, Idaho. In addition to many personal anecdotes, he provides previously unpublished photographs of Hemingway. Hotchner has written a new introduction to this most recent edition of his memoir, which was first published in 1955.
