This new edition of Papa Hemingway from Da Capo Press brings A.E. Hotchner’s famous memoir back into print for the first time in nearly a decade. First published in 1966, this book offers an endlessly lively and intimate portrait of a friendship that spanned thirteen years and no fewer than five countries. Hotchner’s meticulous narrative—much of it derived from Ernest Hemingway’s own letters—depicts one of America’s greatest writers at his warmest and most joyous, but it also charts the long, agonizing physical and emotional decline that ultimately led to Hemingway’s suicide in 1961.
