Overview

READ THE BOOK THEN SEE THE HBO MOVIE WITH CLIVE OWEN AND NICOLE KIDMAN

HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN tells the story of Hemingway's tumultuous marriage to his third wife set against the backdrop of the Great Depression in Key West, the first revolution in Cuba, the Spanish civil war, World War II, and the war in China. It is as much about their activities as intelligence agents and the great political and economic events of the period as it is about the two protagonists. Previous books have portrayed the protagonists in their roles as major literary figures. No other books on Hemingway and Gellhorn have dramatized them as political activists within the context of their era. HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN depicts them as their lives evolved during the major political, military, and economic events of the time-the Great Depression, revolution, war in China and in Europe.
Both writers were extremely political and committed in different ways to their political ideals. They were also highly promiscuous. This is the first book to show them in that light. This is the first book that goes into detail about Hemingway's role as a spy for the U.S. government. This is the first book that discusses how Martha's political passions played such an important role in the breakup of their marriage. This is the first book that talks about Hemingway's need to always have another woman in his life and his many extramarital affairs. This is the first book that examines Gellhorn's affairs before and during their marriage and her true motivation for seducing Hemingway.
