Meet the Author

The preeminent American novelist and short story writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) wrote provocative fiction steeped in the experiences of the "lost generation" that came of age during World War I. Hemingway's four best-known books — The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea — highlight the author's trademark economy of style while depicting lives shaped by futility, frustration, and disappointment. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.

Having read "True at First Light" by Hemingway's son, Patrick, I had low expectations when I learned that "Under Kilimanjaro" came from the same manuscript. However, Lewis and Fleming are to be complemented for faithfully preserving Hemingway's theme of inner conflict between the world or culture of which a man is a part and another world or culture which draws him to it. To me, Patrick lost much of the impact of Hemingway's story in probably an attempt to mellow the memory of Papa. It is also fun to speculate how much of this story is autobiographical.
