This entertaining and emotional biography sheds light on developments, revealing Hemingway's restless life, his youth full of tribulations and rivalry with his father, his experiences during World War I, the Spanish Civil War and World War II, his violent relationships with writers and ladies, his unexpected fame, gradual decline and suicide. Composed on the basis of materials recently made accessible and exclusive interviews, Hemingway enriches the readers' perceptions of the most outstanding American 20th century writer. "Jeffrey Mayers does not find Hemingway's fascination where many of the author's acquaintances had obviously found it.... He tells more about Hemingway's love and sexual life than we probably are entitled to know... With short exceptions, this well documented biography is absorbing and easy to read, while the analyses on literary topics and models are of special interest." Michael Raynolds, America "A captivating but also a tragic portrait." Christophor Lemon-Haupt, New York Times
