Paul Hendrickson's 2003 Sons of Mississippi won the National Book Critics Circle Award. His new book is very different, yet equally powerful. This biography tracks Nobel Prize winning author Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) from the apex of his career to his late descent into alcoholism, depression, and suicide. To tell the story, the veteran journalist of University of Pennsylvania professor focuses on one constant during those years: the writer's beloved boat Pilar. It has been said that Hemingway's life could fuel countless novels and films. This adept biography proves that claim true.
