Built to his specifications in a Brooklyn boatyard, delivered to him in Florida, and then abandoned in Cuba near the end of his life, Ernest Hemingway's beloved fishing boat Pilar was the one constant in his life in the period spanning his most accomplished work and his final decline, posits Paul Hendrickson in this National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. Also the author of Sons of Mississippi(which won the National Book Critics Circle Award) and The Living and the Dead(a National Book Award finalist), Hendrickson frames Hemingway's life and writing in terms of Pilar, arguing that, even when he was away from her, the boat was a substantial aspect of the author's self-image and ever-present in his mind.
