The previous chapter's critique is furthered in this chapter by Ernest Hemingway's wife, Carol, who depicts the dangers of literary exploitation by illuminating the gap between her husband's memories of his boyhood home and the dubious legends perpetuated in its current incarnation as a tourist attraction. Ernest Hemingway spent many productive writing years surrounded by family life, bountiful hunting, fishing, and being visited by a circle of like-minded friends in his Whitehead Street home.
