Description
(National Book Critics Circle Award finalist) Covering the time period that begins with the peak of Ernest Hemingway's fame and ends with his suicide, this biography chronicles the writer's exultations and despair around the one constant in his life during this time: his beloved boat, Pilar. Crisscrossing the globe, Hemingway struggled to maintain the hedonistic lifestyle of his prime, alienating family and friends as he succumbed to depression and alcohol. Drawing on previously unpublished material, including interviews with Hemingway's sons, the National Book Critics Circle–winning author of Sons of Mississippi shows that for all the Nobel Laureate's failings, he was capable of remarkable generosity to struggling writers, to lost souls, to the dying son of a friend.

"There's never been a biography quite like this one…. The stories are rich with contradiction and humanity, and so raw and immediate you can smell the salt air."—Publishers Weekly
