Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement
An excellent account of the formative years of the artist. . . . Reynolds is as good on the Paris writing as he is on the Paris life.
Choice
Engrossing. . . . Reynolds's penetrating analysis and meticulous scholarship reveal Hemingway in all his complexity as man and artist, with no flaw glossed over. The hypocrisy, selfishness, paranoia, the discipline, genius, and ruthlessly self-promoting ambition --all are illuminated and woven into a narrative as compelling as a novel.
