Publisher's Summary

When Michael Palin was researching his novel Hemingway's Chair, his interest was stimulated by Hemingway's appetite for travel and "Papa's" evocations of the places he knew. In pursuit of Hemingway, Palin begins at the beginning, in Oak Park, Idaho, then travels to Italy where Hemingway served in the Ambulance Brigade in the First World War. Then on to Paris in the "Roaring Twenties", bull-running at Pamplona and Hemingway's love affair with Spain. Hemingway became disillusioned and returned to the States, where he lived on Key West in Florida before moving to Sun Valley, Idaho, until the Spanish civil war recalled him.


What the Critics Say

"Easy-going Palin's essential niceness and unpretentious ability to relate to anyone from any culture makes him Britain's best-loved travelling companion." (Talking Business)

Travelling like a Champion!

I have always enjoyed watching Michael Palin documentaries on traveling the planet. In the true style of Michael Palin's mega journeys; a delightful dip into Ernest Hemingways adventures.

Great story about Hemingway

Micheal Palin's voice and dry humour never ceases to bring interest to this topic. Being a Hemingway fan is not necessary to enjoy this audiobook, but it adds value to know about the man and his stories.
