“Ernest Hemingway was the genuine literary giant of my youth: we groundlings studied him closely, we imitated, and then we parodied him, we admired the fine figure he cut and envied his celebrity, and now fifty years later, it’s a privilege to look through his closet and read his stuff and discover him as a mortal man.”
— Garrison Keillor, author of Lake Wobegon and A Visit to Mark Twain’s House
“Hidden Hemingway offers remarkable insights into the complex and frequently-tortured inner life of one of the 20th Century American authors most likely to survive the test of time. An invaluable book for anyone interested in Hemingway or the development of a major creative mind.”
— Scott Turow, author of Identical and Presumed Innocent
“A fascinating book about the most fascinating writer in American history.Hemingway’s life unfolds from these pages in brilliant detail and endless surprise.”
— Jonathan Eig, author of Get Capone: The Secret Plot That Captured America’s Most Wanted Gangster
