Overview

When Ernest Hemingway won the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, presenters called him “one of this epoch’s great molders of style,” praising his vivid dialogue and journalistic eye for “robust details to accumulate and take on momentous significance.” But even the Swedish Academy could not separate Hemingway the writer from Hemingway the adventurer.

Overview

When Ernest Hemingway won the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, presenters called him “one of this epoch’s great molders of style,” praising his vivid dialogue and journalistic eye for “robust details to accumulate and take on momentous significance.” But even the Swedish Academy could not separate Hemingway the writer from Hemingway the adventurer. They also cited his “manly love of danger and adventure, with a natural admiration for every individual who fights the good fight in a world of reality overshadowed by violence and death.” From the 1920s until his death in 1961, “Papa” Hemingway was a larger-than-life literary figure whose everyday exploits became legendary. He was a friend of celebrities, a war correspondent, journalist, renowned big-game hunter, record-setting saltwater angler, and hard-drinking brawler whose reputation preceded him. Though Hemingway was and remains an American icon, he was also first and foremost a human being, as these striking black-and-white photos remind.

Editorial Reviews

Pantagraph.com
Plath, chairman of Illinois Wesleyan University's English Department, deploys his captions to both identify and enlighten in a plainspoken style that straddles the informal and the scholarly. The result is the expansive life of 20th century's most celebrated author compressed into a well-lighted nutshell - from his July 1899 birth in Oak Park through his July 1961 suicide in Ketchum, Idaho. In between: a globe-trotting odyssey through wars, loves, homes, marriages, books, celebrities, infirmities, cronies, boats, bars and offspring. Not to mention the proudly born fruits of rods and rifles. Long story short, which is the way the subject would want it, no doubt: the seemingly breezy task of captioning 200-odd photos involved considerable detective work and supplementing from Plath's own resources and contacts, all in the name of doing his literary Papa proud.

    Like walking side-by-side with the bigger than life legend!

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, the word count for this handsome book, is off the charts.

    The photos bring all the bios to life. The captions are exceptional and worthy of its subject.
