Hemingway was a vile, cruel, son of a bitch who was also a fantastic writer. I've long thought that his raw, biting fiction couldn't have been created from less than his particular hell - what he survived and carried into every moment of the rest of his life - and that great art was a poor trade for ruined happiness. This novel, a fictionalized account that yet rings true with what I've seen in histories and biographies, confirms that utterly.
