Ernest Hemingway :  A Writer's Life

   
Author: Catherine Reef 

Meet one of the most significant and notorious American writers of the 20th century. Ernest Hemingway is considered one of the greatest writers in modern history, and his novels and stories are read, studied, and imitated around the world. His concise prose style earned him both a Pulitzer and a Nobel Prize. His name conjures up vivid images: grand adventurer, soldier, war correspondent, big-game hunter, bullfight aficionado, and writer. His life reads like a suspense story—full of action, romance, heartbreak, machismo, mishaps, celebrity, and tragedy. Author Catherine Reef has crafted a compelling biography that is not only a highly enjoyable account of an extraordinary life but also an accessible and tempting introduction to the work of one of our most revered—and sometimes reviled—American icons.

Review:   
"Ernest Hemingway was a man's man and a writer's writer—a lover of big-game hunting and bullfights, a man drawn to any number of tests of courage, and the author of some of the most moving and influential works of twentieth-century literature. In this straightforward biography, Catherine Reef hits all the high points of Hemingway's eventful life and career, from his time with the Red Cross during WWI to his salad days as the leader of the Lost Generation in 1920s Paris to his self-exile in the Florida Keys. Narrator Jill Shellabarger is at her best reading Reef's well-formulated summaries and discussions of some of Hemingway's most enduring works, including A FAREWELL TO ARMS and THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA."
