LJ Reviews 2016 July #1

Hutchisson (American literature, The Citadel; Poe) sets his sights here on another celebrated American author who met a tragic end. He views Ernest Hemingway's wounding in World War I and his subsequent affair with Agnes von Kurowsky as sources for the novelist's obsession with love and violence, themes connected in much of his work. Hemingway's life unfolds through his relationships with wives and lovers in the places they shared together—Italy, Paris, Spain, Key West, Cuba, and Ketchum, ID. While Hutchisson recounts his subject's life from cradle to grave, his approach facilitates an exploration of gender-identity issues within the Hemingway family, as well as the treatment of topics such as sexual ambiguity in his fiction. The book highlights Hemingway's medical knowledge, not surprising given that his father was a physician. Hemingway's major works such as A Farewell to Arms and A Moveable Feast are discussed intelligently, including the roles the women in his life at the time played in their creation. An assessment of each book's reception is also provided. Overall, Hemingway is portrayed as a dedicated artist plagued by loneliness and insecurities in spite of his celebrity. VERDICT Written in graceful, jargon-free prose, this compact biography will appeal broadly to general readers, students, and scholars.—William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
