Covers the fourteen years before Hemingway's death, but much of the narrative flashes back to Hemingway's reminiscences of his childhood, to the Paris literary group in the 1920s, to his early years as a writer, and to the people and circumstances that were the reality behind his fiction. "Few portraits of success have been more unflinching, few studies of a crack-up more anguishing . . . My belief is that Papa himself, crusty, tender, shockproof, belligerent and sensitive as he was, would have approved of it," -- John Mason Brown, Book-of-the-Month Club News
