Summary

Meet one of the most significant and notorious American writers of the 20th century. Ernest Hemingway is considered one of the greatest writers in modern history, and his novels and stories are read, studied, and imitated around the world. His concise prose style earned him both a Pulitzer and a Nobel Prize. His name conjures up vivid images: grand adventurer, soldier, war correspondent, big-game hunter, bullfight aficionado, and writer. His life reads like a suspense story of action, romance, heartbreak, machismo, mishaps, celebrity, and tragedy. Author Catherine Reef has crafted a compelling biography that is an accessible introduction to the work of one of our most revered - and sometimes reviled - American icons.
