A.E. Hotchner is a dramatist, novelist, screenwriter, and biographer. He divides his time between Westport, Connecticut, and Manhattan.
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.
"Remarkable...makes Hemingway live for us as nothing else has done". Wall Street Journal "Make no mistake about it: this is a tragedy in the classic sense - the fall of a giant...it is hard to imagine a better biography". Life"
