An amusing, light read. If you are expecting irreverent Python humor, this book is far more tongue-in-cheek. There are a few amusing descriptions, but the main focus is on the main character's obsession with Ernest Hemingway and how that affects his life--especially when another enthusiast comes rolling in. It's probably a lot more interesting if you can directly relate to it; if you can recall a time where the love of a single person made up this large, yet secret part of your life, like when you were a teenager crushing on a celebrity, or if you have someone in your life that you deeply respect but fear that others may judge you for where your respect is placed.
