Ernest Hemingway: A Literary Life (Literary Lives) : Linda Wagner-Martin brings a wealth of new information to this detailed portrait of Hemingway's life and work, now available for the first time in paperback. Emphasising his immense love of animals, the sea and the natural world, the swiftly-told personal narrative gives a crucial insight into Hemingway's character, revealing him as a conflicted idealist caught between his need to write and his need to love. Wagner-Martin explores his friendships with women and the history of his four marriages, and builds up a vivid picture of Hemingway's century - not only the two world wars and the Spanish Civil War, but also the peaceful fishing in the Gulf waters, the African safaris, and the iconic Spanish bullfights. Linda Wagner-Martin's Ernest Hemingway: A Literary Life focusses on the author's marital relationships as one of the keys to his work.
