  • Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost, 1934 - 1961

    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 Drawing on previously unpublished material, Hendrickson focuses on Hemingway’s life in its twilight, just prior to his suicide, and the seemingly singular constant in the man’s life: his boat,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.

    Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Flight Behavior to be better than the print version?

    Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel. Really love it when the author is narrating.


    If you could take any character from Flight Behavior out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The scientist would be the most interesting dinner companion.
