In my twenties, and for decades later, I considered A Moveable Feast to be the best book I ever read. Then a few years ago, in preparation for going to Paris, I read it again and found it somehow diminished - sad and a little bit sordid. I thought: What a jerk. How could he do that to Hadley and Bumby? This book by A.E. Hotchner answers that question, still leaving me feeling that Hem was indeed a jerk, but helping me to see the human side of what he did. He naively, but actually, thought he could have both Hadley and Pauline. In the end he considered it the tragic mistake of his life.

Hotchner hung around with Hemingway during the 40s and 50s, sometimes recording their conversations on a little tape recorder and making notes from it. Now that the people who could be hurt by these revelations are gone, Hotchner thought it was time to tell the story. I'm glad he did.

It's amazing when a book makes you understand something about yourself that you hadn't before, and I think it's because this was an entirely new side of Hemingway I hadn't seen before. Highly recommend if you're interested in Hemingway.

A quick read but no substance.
Hotchner filled the pages with name-dropping and letting us know that he hob-knobbed with Papa Hemingway.
The tone is of someone wanting to cash in on a chance opportunity of having met Hemingway and befriended him (although it seems a bit of a parasitic relationship with Hemingway paying for the dinners, wines and at least some trips).
Lots of name-dropping and no one names can defend themselves anymore.
Not a fan.
