Description

Ernest Hemingway was arguably the most influential writer of the 20th century, the Nobel Prize-winning author of such classics as For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms, and a man who lived his life with as much passion and intensity as many of the characters in his novels. With exceptional insight, Anthony Burgess traces Hemingway's singular life: from complacent childhood to the horrors of the First and Second World Wars to the glamour of Paris in the '20s; from Civil War Spain to the excitements of African safari and, finally, the sombre last years in Cuba. Burgess's vivid portrait is unflinching yet full of empathy: essential reading for all Hemingway fans.
