Between 1948 and 1961, Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner traveled together, fished the waters off Cuba, hunted in Idaho, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona. Everywhere they went, they talked. For 14 years, Hotchner and Hemingway shared their thoughts and as Hemingway reminisced about his childhood, recalled the Paris literary scene of the 20s, and recounted the real events that lay behind his fiction, Hotchner took it all down.

I read Hemingway in love first. I felt a lot of repetition because of that.

Also I admire Robert Stack very much but it was difficult to hear some of the story because of the unique quality of his voice.
