Publisher's Summary

Ernest Hemingway has sometimes been called one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. The titles of his works - novels such as The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls or short stories such as “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” - are recognizable even to many who have never read them. His last novel, The Old Man and the Sea, won him the Pulitzer Prize in fiction, and he also won the Nobel Prize in literature. Hemingway used language to develop an innovative style, purposely seeking to set himself apart from those who had come before with his distinctive pared-down sentences. 

You will hear about:

  • From Journalist to War Hero
  • Bullfights and Book Deals
  • Hemingway’s Breakthrough
  • Suicide in the Family
  • Hemingway During World War II
  • Pulitzer Prize and Plane Crashes
  • And much more!

In this short book, you’ll discover that much of Hemingway’s writing drew on the experiences of his life. From the bullfights of Spain to safaris in East Africa; from being a war correspondent in war zones around the world to surviving multiple airplane and car crashes, Hemingway’s life is a riveting story worth exploring in and of itself.

Quick and materially dense. Good read!

This was a wonderful quick synopsis of Hemingway. In just over an hour’s time, it covers his full life. I’d recommend it for any Hemingway enthusiasts who want to know the man behind the classic literature.
