Description
" Go take a flying leap if you came here to flatter me. " It's easy to imagine Hemingway at his desk, reacting with his fabled aggression when interrupted for adviceas he does here. Known for his globetrotting; passion for bullfighting, fishing, and hunting; fascination with war; and feuds with rivals like Gertrude Stein, he set the 20th-century template for the artist as an adventurer and man of action. Kirk Curnutt, a professor and member of the board of directors of the Ernest Hemingway Society, and multi-award-winning author John Updike arrange a mesmerizing meeting with this prickly American genius.
