I realized while reading this short story just how little I actually know about the great Hemingway. And had I actually read the blurb that told me about this wonderful tale, I would have been a tad more enlightened about the missing valise. Serves me right for waiting until after I was finished the book to read it. I always knew there were people out there who thrive after the great hunts of our time - The Holy Grail, missing manuscripts and assorted findings in tombs and crypts. I love the conspiracy theories that surround important/famous missing items. And this story was no exception. Traipsing across Paris, waiting for the was all very exciting. And almost unfathomable that someone could be so infatuated with Hemingway. I felt like Jones would pay any price for that next elusive bit if history that no one else has seen concocted by Hemingway's own hand. This was a great short story with a nice surprise ending.
