Publisher's Summary

A revelatory look into the life and work of Ernest Hemingway, considered in his time to be the greatest living American novelist and short story writer, winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
Mary Dearborn's new biography gives the richest and most nuanced portrait to date of this complex, enigmatically unique American artist, whose same uncontrollable demons that inspired and drove him throughout his life undid him at the end and whose seven novels and six short story collections informed - and are still informing - fiction writing generations after his death.

Detailed codified report of Papa's incredible life

While this book has been informative and interesting, it was difficult for me to get totally threw the 33 lengthy chapters due to the incredible details of Hemingway's life. It would be the perfect source 4 a screenwriter Desiring to right I scrapped on Hemingway's life.
I would have preferred an Abridged version that would have answered my curiosity about his life, but I'm glad I listened to the whole book. Sad that his life ended as it did as well as the lies of some of his siblings and sons.

Very interesting biography and great narration

The narrator does a excellent job, one of the best I have listened to. The biography is very interesting but has a few holes and places that I wish she would have explained better.
