Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure

Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

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.

Review:

"Italy, Paris, back to Africa and on to Cuba and Key West, Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure works on many different levels: There's Palin's charm and self-deprecating style. There are his keen insights on life, balanced nicely by pure silliness from time to time? A delightful travelogue." The Baltimore Sun

Review:

"Palin's prose is spry and insightful, identifying the true warmth felt for Hemingway in these locales?.Any trout-fishing, bull-running, wing-shooting Hemingway fan worth his martini shaker should find this book fun." Library Journal

Synopsis:

From bestselling author Palin comes a travelogue and biography of American writer and adventurer Ernest Hemingway, a companion to the four-part PBS series of the same title. 175 photos in color and b&w.
