"Ernest Hemingway considered himself a writer first and foremost. For him, the word needed no epithet: not American, not Catholic, not contemporary, although he was proudly all those things." So writes Ms. Hemingway. "In his iceberg theory of writing, Hemingway allowed that eighty percent of the meaning was concealed. If a story were well enough written, the astute reader would detect much of what had been left out. Matthew Nickel is a thorough and careful scholar. He has delved beneath the surface and has found a treasure trove of meaning. This book will enrich every reader’s understanding of Hemingway, the man and his work."
Valerie Hemingway is herself the author of a critically-acclaimed memoir - Running with the Bulls: My Years with the Hemingways - and frequently gives lectures and talks on Hemingway and his work. She has also appeared on such national broadcasts as NBC's TODAY and written for such publications as The New York Times.
