Overview


Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together from New York to Paris to Spain, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, ran with the bulls in Pamplona—and once Hotchner even masqueraded as a matador and Hemingway's manager in an actual bullfight. Everywhere they went, they talked. For fourteen years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the twenties, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down. His notes on the many occasions he spent with his friend Papa—in Venice and Rome, in Key West, on the Riviera, and in Ketchum, Idaho, where Hemingway died by his own hand in 1961—provide the material for this utterly profound, and truthfully compassionate best-selling memoir about the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author. With a new introduction by the author and with never before published photographs from his personal collection, Papa Hemingway is a mesmerizing portrait.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Another portrait of Hemingway to coincide with July's centennial celebration. Hotchner was Ernesto's close pal for the last dozen or so years of his life and as such is able to offer a good deal of firsthand information and anecdotes, although his obvious admiration for the great writer somewhat softens his memories. Nonetheless, this volume is a standard, made all the better by the inclusion of extra photographs and a new introduction by the author. A must have.
