H.R. Stoneback at work in Paris.
Stoneback's earlier New Street book HEMINGWAY'S PARIS: OUR PARIS? has been acclaimed by a range of critics and commentators.
"H.R. Stoneback knows his Hemingway and his Paris," wrote Valerie Hemingway. "I had the incomparable experience of visiting Paris twice while working for Ernest Hemingway in 1959. I viewed the city at the side of the writer while he added the finishing touches to A MOVEABLE FEAST. Professor Stoneback's evocation of Hemingway's Paris of the 1920s is as close as I have come since to reliving those Paris days in the company of Ernest Hemingway." In turn, close Hemingway friend A.E. Hotchner (author of the classic PAPA HEMINGWAY) commented: "Professor Stoneback's lyrical prose takes the reader inside the soul of Hemingway's Paris, penetrating the surface of guide-books to reveal tantalizing secrets."
H.R. Stoneback holds the title Distinguished Professor of English at the State University of New York, New Paltz. Stoneback has received numerous awards and honors for criticism, poetry and teaching. He has served as visiting professor at the University of Paris, Fulbright Professor at Peking University and director of the American Center for Students and Artists in Paris. A leading scholar of international reputation on Ernest Hemingway, Stoneback is also a widely published literary critic, poet and author or editor of more than 20 volumes of criticism and poetry. His recent books include READING HEMINGWAY'S "THE SUN ALSO RISES" (Kent State University Press, 2007) and HURRICANE HYMN AND OTHER POEMS (Codhill Press, 2009). Stoneback is a former member of the Board of Directors of the Hemingway Society.
