Summary
Hendrickson (creative writing, U. of Pennsylvania) reconstructs a pivotal period in author Ernest Hemingway's life, from the peak of his career to his suicide. The psychological narrative revolves around Hemingway's boat, Pilar, and the Hemingway family's journeys in the US and abroad. Delving deeply into the reasons behind the family's emotional and mental problems across several generations, the author draws on previously unpublished material, including interviews with family members, to reveal Hemingway the family man. There is special focus on Hemingway's relationship with his youngest son, Gregory, who at age 10 was a gifted marksman like his father, but who later became a cross-dresser and died in a women's detention center. The book includes b&w photos from personal collections. The author won a National Book Critics Circle Award for his book, Sons of Mississippi, in 2003.
