The winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, Ernest Hemingway is one of the true giants of modern American literature. Hemingway's punchy, pared-down style and ability to zero in on the perfect characterizing detail of a person or scene has influenced every serious novelist of the second half of the 20th century. Everyone reads him at one time or another.

|A Moveable Feast|
Hemingway's posthumous memoir reveals the magic of a time and place that has become legendary -- Paris in the 1920s. Read about the spirited, bohemian life he led with his first wife and literary contemporaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, and Ezra Pound.
|True at First Light: A Fictional Memoir|
Ernest Hemingway, Patrick Hemingway
This memoir of Hemingway's 1953 African safari offers a glimpse into life of the renowned author. He put the manuscript aside without finishing it, but his son, Patrick, edited it for publication, adding fictional touches. While it may not be on par with one of Hemingway’s novels, this “fictional memoir” still has the power to enthrall.
