Feb. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- Ernest Hemingway's one-time secretary and former daughter-in-law, who was a close intimate of the writer during his final years, has joined several leading scholars and critics in applauding Matthew Nickel's new Hemingway's Dark Night: Catholic Influences and Intertextualities in the Work of Ernest Hemingway, published by New Street Communications.

"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.


Matthew C. Nickel
holds a PhD in literature from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. His writing on American and British literature has appeared in journals and scholarly volumes such as North Dakota Quarterly, Ernest Hemingway in Context, Reading Roberts: Prospect & Retrospect, and Durrell and the City: Collected Essays on Place. He is also a poet and editor. His most recent anthology of poetry is Kentucky: Poets of Place.
