Sigal breaks new ground in celebrating Hemingway's passionate and unapologetic political partisanship, his stunningly concise, no-frills writing style, and an attitude to sex and sexuality much more nuanced than he is traditionally credited with. Simply for the pleasure provided by a consummate story teller, Hemingway is as much a must-read author as ever.
Though Hemingway Lives! will provide plenty that's new for those already familiar with Papa's oeuvre, it assumes no prior knowledge of his work. Those venturing into Hemingway's writing for the first time will find in Sigal an inspirational and erudite guide.

Enjoyable summary of Hemingway's life
But the reader did seem to struggle with many of the non-American words. Some of the pronunciations were so off target as to be an amusing sub-plot to the story in its own right. That said, I've learnt a lot about the writer's life and the development of his style that so influenced other American and European writers in the 1950s and 1960s. Would I recommend it to others? Yes.
