Synopsis

A richly illustrated collection of stores about Ernest Hemingway and his love affair with Cuba as narrated by his niece Hilary Hemingway, featuring unpublished photographs and never before seen material.

HEMINGWAY IN CUBA is at once a literary journey for the armchair traveler and a rich companion guide for Hemingway aficionados touring Papa’s haunts in Cuba and in neighboring Bimini and Key West. Hilary gives new insight into her uncle’s life in Cuba, relating tales of his renowned passion for big game fish, the women who competed for his affection, and the people who came to inhabit stories such To Have & Have Not, Islands in the Stream.
In 2002, the Cuban government granted permission to a select group of scholars to examine a cache of Hemingway’s papers untouched since his death in 1961. Hemingway In Cuba will feature revelations from the never before seen letters, marginalia, and other documents uncovered in the restoration effort at Finca Vigia, Hemingway’s home in Cuba.

Ernest Hemingway's ninety or so published poems attest to his lifelong flirtation with the muse, and his biography echoes with names, influences, and contretemps with a galaxy of poets from stars like Ezra Pound, Archibald MacLeish, and Wallace Stevens to lesser lights like Evan Shipman and Ernes...

Some of those dealing with Hemingway biography, such as Tateo Imamura and Satoru Wada's Hemingway (1995), Barnaby Conrad and Loomis Dean's Hemingway's Spain (1989), and Robert Gajdusek's Hemingway's Paris (1978) have become much-sought out-of-print items among Hemingway bibliophiles.

“I was there.” What drew me closer to Hemingway, after visiting his Havana haunts, his Finca (where his beloved boat, the Pilar, now sits on blocks on Papa’s tennis court), the little town of Cojimar where the local fishermen, after learning the news, melted several anchors to forge a bust in ...
