Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this photographic extravaganza, long-time pal Hotchner, author of Papa Hemingway ( LJ 6/15/66), presents the standard rogues' gallery of Don Ernesto's family, friends, and literary comrades. Many of the photos (520 in all, 80 in color) have been published before but only as small, grainy mug shots. Here, however, the photos, which are the main course of this volume, are big, bright, and clear. Hotchner begins each chapter with a brief introduction to periods in Papa's life (the early years, the Paris years, etc.) and the people involved in them and follows up with numbered photos and captions. While the text will give the reader a working knowledge of the subject's life, this book is more a tribute than a biography and is not in the same league with the analytical biographies by Carlos Baker and Jeffrey Meyers. However, it is recommended on the strength of the photos, which should make Hemingway aficionados reach nirvana.-- Michael Rogers, ``Library Journal''
This illustrated biography follows Hemingway from his childhood and schooldays, his early years in Kansas City and on the Italian front, the years in Paris and Spain, to the later years in Key West, Havana, Africa, Venice and Ketchum. There are 420 illustrations, many in color. A.E. Hotchner, Hemingway's friend and biographer, combines personal reminiscences with critical analyses of the major works, to produce an affectionate tribute to "Papa". See following entry.
