There are many biographies of Hemingway, but perhaps non so intimate as the one written by Mary, his last and perhaps most endeared wife of seventeen years. They had so much in common from the beginning: she a Time correspondent, and he, a talented journalist and author with a flair for "living life in a large way" ! That would be a good abstraction of the many interests, sports and even obsessions he had, especially in portraying war stories, safaris, bull fighting, and deep sea fishing !!! Always a contender if not a winner, Ernest was a good match for Mary, who also had a zest for life that equalled his own ! A beautifully told story of their early to late years together including the heart breaking suicide that changed her world. The struggle Mary Hemingway had to preserve his manuscripts and personal property from the Cuban government is an eye opener ! Much to learn in this one !!
