Show Summary Details


The first part of this book, “Hemingway in the Keys”, explores how the city shaped the writer's life from 1928 on. This chapter, a previously unpublished sketch from the early 1930s, reveals Hemingway's ambivalence toward both locals and toward the entourage that increasingly intervened between him and his art. The chapter also features an introduction by Hemingway's sole surviving son, Patrick Hemingway, who registers his regret for the mythologizing of his father that accelerated during his Key West years.
