    This is a hard book to review. I understand how many people could be fed up with yet another Hemingway story, even though it?s true and includes their letters. Hemingway is pretty much the antithesis of political correctness, an ego driven and needy man and and disrespectful to women...

    There is no fool like an old lech and this portrayal of Hemingway is pretty brutal about Hemingway?s quest after a girl 40 years younger. Sad story about a pathetic old man, an anxious older wife determined to hold on to her man and a girl who caught his attention and was determined ...

    This book offers an insightful and often-compelling look at the later years of Hemingway's life, during which he found inspiration in a strange affection for a young Italian woman. Parts of the book are hilarious and other parts quite moving. Brief parts discuss interactions with other...

    Clearly this is a well-research book with numerous primary sources at its base. For readers curious about/a follower of Hemingway in the later decades of his life and his relationship with a Venetian woman Adriana who is easily young enough to be his daughter, Autumn in Venice reveals ...

    I have to admit, it's been a long time since I read Carlos Baker's Hemingway Biography. This didn't seem quite on par with that, but like I say, it's been a long time with many, many reading experienced in between. The book was interesting though a little difficult to start. Got much b...

    Straightforward narrative account. The flaw I find is at times it gets too detailed, a play by play and personally for me I found myself fighting through. If you can get past those moments it's a good read. ...
