Event Details

Meet Mary V. Dearborn, author of the first full biography of Hemingway in more than fifteen years. A revelatory look into the life and work of the winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature; a rich and nuanced portrait of a complex, enigmatic American artist, whose seven novels and six short story collections informed–and are still informing–fiction writing generations after his death.

The author draws upon a massive cache of papers Hemingway left behind when he fled his Cuban farm in 1961; his complete FBI file, detailing his wartime experience in pursuit of German submarines in the Caribbean; the recently opened KGB archive of American activities connecting Hemingway to the KGB as a "recruitment"; Hemingway family papers and more.

Sales and signing by Diane's Books.
