Hemingway is one of my favorite writers ever. “The Sun Also Rises,” and “A Farewell to Arms” both make my top ten lists. I consider him the greatest short story writer I have ever read, and his,”A Movable Feast” one of the best and touching memoirs ever written.

My one concern about Hemingway has always been that his adventurous life would overshadow his literary genius, and it is one reason I have stayed away from reading anymore biographers about his life and adventures.

My friend Frank’s daughter, Alice, knowing that I am a Hemingway fan send me “Ernest Hemingway, The Last Interview” that is comprised of four interviews, by four distinguished writers, who interviewed Hemingway toward the very end of his life. Each interview gave me new insights into the writer that I did not know, and helped explain things I had wondered about for many years. As a fan of the writer, more than his adventurous life, the interviews were a telling example about what most concerned him about his writing, and his thoughts on many of the literary giants who were his friends. I truly enjoyed this book.511uvxLsYBL._SX332_BO1,204,203,200_
