The" Inside" Story

by AnnieLou on Apr 24, 2007

This book is an "inside" account of the Hemingway mystique. Written with great care and devotion to her subject, Valerie Hemingway (daughter in law) tells of her relationship with Ernest and his family. As a secretary to Hemingway she is asked to accompany him on his trips to Spain, and France, and to join him on his many forays into the arts of bull fighting and deep sea fishing ! An exciting account, with more details of the intimate life time relationships they shared with his sons, and latest wife ,Mary. Eventually Valerie meets his youngest son, Gregory, recently divorced with two children. They are drawn to each other at the funeral of Ernest, and continue their relationship until they marry and have a family of their own. The "hidden" problem that Gregory i s struggling with is revealed in time, and even her love and the devotion of their children is not enough to save him from an ignominious death. Read this book and you will not have a boring chapter !
