Pretty interesting look starting with the author's research into an ur-text that Hemingway worked on from late forties until his death...out of which came Old Man, Across the River, Moveable Feast and all the posthumous stuff. Made me respect even more EH's committment to writing...he kept at it hard even when he was in decline.
