    An award-winning historian and author, Paul Hendrickson here turns his attention to one of America’s most cherished literary icons, Ernest Hemingway. Drawing on previously unpublished material, Hendrickson focuses on Hemingway’s life in its twilight, just prior to his suicide, and the seemingly singular constant in the man’s life: his boat, Pilar. On this vessel, Hemingway would entertain and travel, but it would also be the scene of some of his greatest tragedies.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Book would be best read abridged. He fell in love with every fact he found and filled the pages with them. He needed a good editor to prune it back.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Paul Hendrickson? Why or why not?

    Not at this point.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A fine reader, stuck with a too-long book.
