    This is a hard book to review. I understand how many people could be fed up with yet another Hemingway story, even though it?s true and includes their letters. Hemingway is pretty much the antithesis of political correctness, an ego driven and needy man and and disrespectful to women...

    There never seem to be a dearth of works focused on Earnest Hemingway. And during the last several years a handful of studies have appeared based on new primary documentation and dealing with narrower periods of Hemingway?s life. Among those works: ? Tony Castro?s 2017 Looking...

    The rich and famous behaving badly A well-researched, well-written book, but a bit wearying. Hemingway definitely in the winter of his career falls in love with a 20-year old and produces two of his masterpieces and one terrible novel. ...

    There is no fool like an old lech and this portrayal of Hemingway is pretty brutal about Hemingway?s quest after a girl 40 years younger. Sad story about a pathetic old man, an anxious older wife determined to hold on to her man and a girl who caught his attention and was determined ...

    This book offers an insightful and often-compelling look at the later years of Hemingway's life, during which he found inspiration in a strange affection for a young Italian woman. Parts of the book are hilarious and other parts quite moving. Brief parts discuss interactions with other...

    'Autumn in Venice' by Andrea di Robilant is definitely one for Hemingway fans. It describes the relationship between the writer who was 50 and Adriana a young Venetian girl who was 18 when they met. It is quite detailed (perhaps a little too much) but draws you in, especially for those...

    This was a delightful read for me. It was very well written and read like a novel. I could hardly put it down. I read Across the River and Into the Trees a few years ago. I think that it was one of the worst books I have ever read. So, its interesting to find that the relationship desc...

    Clearly this is a well-research book with numerous primary sources at its base. For readers curious about/a follower of Hemingway in the later decades of his life and his relationship with a Venetian woman Adriana who is easily young enough to be his daughter, Autumn in Venice reveals ...

    I have to admit, it's been a long time since I read Carlos Baker's Hemingway Biography. This didn't seem quite on par with that, but like I say, it's been a long time with many, many reading experienced in between. The book was interesting though a little difficult to start. Got much b...

    Straightforward narrative account. The flaw I find is at times it gets too detailed, a play by play and personally for me I found myself fighting through. If you can get past those moments it's a good read. ...
