Hemingway by Michael S. Reynolds
Book DescriptionMichael Reynolds discovered the truth about Hemingway's activities during the war years, which included running a counterintelligence operation in Havana. The postwar period was the most productive of Hemingway's writing life, when he authored the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea and received the Nobel Prize. Even as Hemingway graced the cover of Life magazine, his physical and mental health deteriorated while his public image as hunter and sportsman continued to demand the strenuous life. In 1961 he committed suicide, leaving behind the stuff of which American myths are made.

"The Young Hemingway will entertain and surprise. Not only is it a significant contribution to Hemingway critical biography, but it should rank as one of the best nonfiction books of the year."-Los Angeles Times
UK Kirkus Review » Starting with the publication of For Whom the Bell Tolls, the fourth and final volume of Reynolds's masterly biography covers hunting trips with Gary Cooper, the end of his stormy relationship with Martha Gellhorn, marriage to another journalist, Mary Wellesley, and World War II activities that includeD patrolling the Mexican coast for submarines and riding a landing craft onto a Normandy beach on D-Day. Reynolds draws on newly-released material and writes with sympathy and imagination to give a vivid insight into his subjct. He charts the physical and mental deterioration that took place before this winner of literary prizes, attractor of women, money, friends and adventures fell into so deep a depression that he took his own life.
