Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona. And everywhere they went, they talked.For 14 years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the 20s, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down.His notes provide the material for this utterly profound and truthfully compassionate best-selling memoir about Ernest Hemingway.More
"Brilliant.... Hotchner deserves to be compared not only to Capote, but to Boswell." (The New York Times)
"Remarkable...makes Hemingway live for us as nothing else has done." (The Wall Street Journal)

Ironically, no--and I love the book. I've read "Papa Hemingway" at least twice over the years and loved it. But it begs to be read in its entirety, and not in this drastically pared edition.
It's a great story--truly one of the best of its kind (personal memoir) of that generation. However, so much of the richness of Hemingway's extraordinary life is lost in this slashed telling.
Robert Stack did lots of good work in his day--in movies, TV, and radio. But that's the problem, his performance sounds dated and staccato.
Yes, George Clooney as Hemingway--but wait a few years. Aaron Paul as Hotchner--he's ready now.
Please redo this one.
A big fan of "Papa Hemingway."

Great stories, but a little bit of s letdown.
