Hemingway in Love
Hemingway in Love | A.E. Hotchner
4 posts | 4 read | 6 to read
This Hemingway memoir completes A.E. Hotchner's international blockbuster Papa Hemingway, originally published fifty years ago. Hemingway in Love includes material previously withheld from publication, illustrated by photographs drawn from Hotchner's own collection. As a friend and confidante, Hotchner recorded his conversations with Hemingway and kept assiduous notes in his journal over the course of their friendship during the last fifteen years of Hemingway's life. Here he is able to recreate extended monologues and even conversations virtually verbatim, as Hemingway reminisces about his love life and his torment over choosing between his first wife, Hadley, and Pauline, who he would eventually go on to marry. Along the way we also encounter Fitzgerald, Joyce, Picasso, Stein, the Murphys, Josephine Baker, the gang who inspired The Sun Also Rises, and others. In Hemingway in Love, Hotchner artfully organizes these memories into an elegantly constructed, rueful, and heart-breaking love story.

I‘d like to think Hemingway would have loved that the world knows this story now. How lucky to have known Papa as Hotchner did. I simply adored this memoir🥰

Moving and intimate, Hemingway in Love is the repentantly candid chapter missing from the definitive biography of a literary giant. The truth of his first marriage and the great love he spent the rest of his life seeking.

I really enjoyed this quick read about Hemingway's love life. I haven't read his work, other than The Old Man and The Sea in high school. I became intrigued by his personal life after visiting his home in Key West as a teenager.

BookBabe Have you read The Paris Wife? It's about his life with Hadley. And after that, I recommend Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald — you get to know him through the eyes of Scott and Zelda. ❤️ 6y
Notafraidofwords @BookBabe I agree. I loved Z. 6y
BookBabe @Notafraidofwords ☺️👍🏻 6y
NatalieR @BookBabe @Notafraidofwords Awesome guys! Thanks for the recommendations! I have The Paris Wife, but haven't read it yet. I'll check out Z. I plan to start A Moveable Feast next. 6y
MrBook His grandson is an author also. Had a great discussion with him. Sean Hemingway. He works in antiquities. 6y
