The original edition of this widely praised critical study was described as "quite the best book on Hemingway," and its importance was substantially enhanced when Philip Young added an absorbing account of his difficult exchange with Hemingway during the book's preparation and a summary of Hemingway's final years. Now available in a paperback edition through Lightning Print, this book explores the relationship between Hemingway the man and Hemingway the author, offering perspectives that remain fresh and insightful.
