In June of 1961, A. E. Hotchner visited a close friend in the psychiatric ward of St. Mary's Hospital. It would be the last time they spoke - three weeks later, Ernest Hemingway returned home, where he took his own life. Their final conversation was also the final installment in a saga that Hemingway had unraveled for Hotchner over years of world travel. Ernest always kept a few of his special experiences off the page, storing them as insurance against a dry-up of ideas. But after a near miss with death, he entrusted his most meaningful tale to Hotchner, so that if he never got to write it himself, then at least someone would know. In characteristically pragmatic terms, Hemingway divulged the details of the affair that destroyed his first marriage: the truth of his romantic life in Paris and how he gambled and lost Hadley, the great love he'd spend the rest of his life seeking. But the search was not without its notable moments, and he told of those, too: of impotence cured in a house of God; of back-to-back plane crashes in the African bush, one of which nearly killed him, while he emerged from the other brandishing a bottle of gin and a bunch of bananas; of cocktails and commiseration with F. Scott Fitzgerald and Josephine Baker; of adventure, human error, and life after lost love. This is Hemingway as few have known him - humble, thoughtful, and full of regret. To protect the feelings of Ernest's wife, Mary, who was also a close friend, Hotch kept these conversations to himself for decades. Now he tells the story as Hemingway told it to him. Hemingway in Love puts you in the room with the master and invites you to listen as he relives the drama of those young, definitive years that set the course for the rest of his life and dogged him to the end of his days.

In June of 1961, A.E. Hotchner visited an old friend in the psychiatric ward of St. Mary's Hospital. It would be the last time they spoke--a few weeks later, Ernest Hemingway was released home, where he took his own life. Their final conversation was also the final installment in a story whose telling Hemingway had spread over more than a decade. In characteristically pragmatic terms, Hemingway revealed to Hotchner the details of the affair that destroyed his first marriage: the truth of his romantic life in Paris and how he lost Hadley, the true part of each literary woman he'd later create and the great love he spent the rest of his life seeking. And he told of the mischief that made him a legend: of impotence cured in a house of God; of a plane crash in the African bush, from which Hemingway stumbled with a bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin in hand; of F. Scott Fitzgerald dispensing romantic advice and champagne in the buff with Josephine Baker; of adventure, human error, and life after lost love. This is Hemingway as you've never known him--humble, thoughtful, and full of regret. To protect the feelings of Ernest's wife--Mary, also a close friend--Hotch held back, keeping the conversations to himself for decades. Now, for the first time, he tells the whole story, mostly in Hemingway's own words. Hemingway in Love is the intimate and repentantly candid chapter missing from the definitive biography of a literary giant.
Hemingway’s early work was destructive of romantic love, says Lewis; the work of his middle career was crucial in his exploration for the supreme love and the means to whatever peace and happiness man may achieve.

Love was a central theme of Ernest Hemingway’s major works. And although his passages on sexual love and on romantic love may be widely remembered and frequently quoted, says Robert W. Lewis in this scholarly and detailed consideration, Hemingway’s later work revealed his ultimate belief that brotherly love was the supreme love of mankind. Eros, Hemingway concluded, was a neutral value, neither good nor bad in itself, but yet capable of complementing agape in giving man pleasure. By examining the forms and essences of the various kinds of love, Hemingway worked out an explanation and tentative solution to the troubles of the human condition. The tradition of romantic love that had prevailed in Western literature had challenged sexual love and brotherly love and had been confused with them since the Middle Ages. Hemingway’s early work was destructive of romantic love, says Lewis; the work of his middle career was crucial in his exploration for the supreme love and the means to whatever peace and happiness man may achieve. By the time he wrote The Old Man and the Sea, his ethic was formulated and he could write conclusively of the trial and lesson of love in Western civilization in a way that reflected his discovery that true love must be a reciprocal blend of eros and agape between man and woman, man and man, and man and his world.

An intimate, joy-filled portrait and New York Times bestseller, written by one of Hemingway’s closest friends: “It is hard to imagine a better biography” (Life). In 1948, A. E. Hotchner went to Cuba to ask Ernest Hemingway to write an article on “The Future of Literature” for Cosmopolitan magazine. The article never materialized, but from that first meeting at the El Floridita bar in Havana until Hemingway’s death in 1961, Hotchner and the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize–winning author developed a deep and abiding friendship. They caroused in New York City and Rome, ran with the bulls in Pamplona, hunted in Idaho, and fished the waters off Cuba. Every time they got together, Hemingway held forth on an astonishing variety of subjects, from the art of the perfect daiquiri to Paris in the 1920s to his boyhood in Oak Park, Illinois. Thankfully, Hotchner took it all down. Papa Hemingway provides fascinating details about Hemingway’s daily routine, including the German army belt he wore and his habit of writing descriptive passages in longhand and dialogue on a typewriter, and documents his memories of Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Martha Gellhorn, Marlene Dietrich, and many of the twentieth century’s most notable artists and celebrities. In the literary icon’s final years, as his poor health began to affect his work, Hotchner tenderly and honestly portrays Hemingway’s valiant attempts to beat back the depression that would lead him to take his own life. Deeply compassionate and highly entertaining, this “remarkable” New York Times bestseller “makes Hemingway live for us as nothing else has done” (The Wall Street Journal).

The Colour of Love is a wonderful and delightful story. It is more than just the coming together of our two young lovers, Yosef, and Lisa, but the coming together of an entire Multicultural community. Yosef and Lisa are the two catalysts that 'Bridge the Gap' and show their families, friends and neighbors the true meaning of 'real love'. From its graphic beginning to its climatic ending, The Colour of Love will cause the reader to look carefully into the deepness of their own soul to perhaps see if there are any underlying prejudices that are still unresolved. Prayerfully this story will help the reader to resolve these issues, and see healing as the end result. The Colour of Love with its mixture of Afro-American and Jewish culture combined with its wonderful blend of humor, and sensuality, intrigue and mystery. And the supernatural. All interwoven to weave a tapestry of Love, Hope and Faith. Let its pages take you on a journey of all of the above. The Colour of Love will cause your faith to soar from one level of faith to the next. See the workings of God as He works miracle after miracle, see Yosef and Lisa bring an entire community together. See and feel the heat, the passion of their love! The Colour of Love is more than just a story, its an EXPERIENCE! So get ready to fall in love in a new way, as you savor the pages of The Colour of Love. THE AUTHOR from the INTRODUCTION The Colour of Love is a very powerful and necessary book dealing with the healing of Racism. Throughout the story, I recommend that everyone should read every single word of this book! It will challenge your beliefs, and change your life! It has already blessed me both spiritually and mentally in ways that I cannot find words for. I felt a most tremendous joy release as I finished reading every page of it. I know from personal experience the awesome relationship that Anne has with God, and it has brought me closer to Him as well. This book helped me and it will surely help you too! All other readers already have complimented Anne on how her Novel has helped them to re-examine themselves, and has brought healing to many. Please make note of that one point that says, "True love sees no colour...No colour at all." God sees me the same as he sees you or any other person. Notice her opening Scripture from I Samuel 16:7. That should be more than enough to cause us to realize that Love is not of the skin, but of the heart. He looks at the heart of a person, and not their outer appearance. One Chapter that touched my heart so deeply is when Lisa (who is Anne mind you) prayed for Yosef's father Rabbi Epstein in the hospital. And the results were miraculous! I just want to say in closing that, I commend Anne on her labor of Love for God, and allowing Him to use her to write such a very much needed story. Anne may God continue to bless you in all that you do for Him, and His Kingdome. God bless you richly dear. Your sister in Christ. Evang. Jarry Turner.

In 1937, courageous and independent Martha Gellhorn travels to Madrid to report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War, and finds herself drawn to the stories of ordinary people caught in devastating conflict. She also finds herself unexpectedly - and uncontrollably - falling in love with Ernest Hemingway, a man already on his way to being a legend. In the shadow of the impending Second World War, and set against the tumultuous backdrops of Madrid, Finland, China, and especially Cuba, where Martha and Hemingway made their home, their relationship and professional careers ignite. But when Hemingway publishes the biggest literary success of his career, they are no longer equals, and Martha must make a choice: surrender to the suffocating demands of a domestic lifestyle, or risk losing her husband by forging her way as her own woman and writer. It is a dilemma that will force her to break his heart, and her own. Based on a true story Martha Gellhorn was one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century FOR WHOM THE BELLS TOLLS was dedicated to Martha, and inspired by the time they were together in Spain. It was Hemingway's most successful book to date, it sold half a million copies within months, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and triumphantly reestablished his literary reputation

In this original comparative study of Kurt Vonnegut and Ernest Hemingway, Lawrence R. Broer maps the striking intersections of biography and artistry in works by both writers, and he compares the ways in which they blend life and art. Broer views Hemingway as the �secret sharer� of Vonnegut�s literary imagination and argues that the two writers�while traditionally considered as adversaries because of Vonnegut�s rejection of Hemingway�s emblematic hypermasculinism�inevitably address similar deterministic wounds in their fiction: childhood traumas, family insanity, deforming wartime experiences, and depression. Rooting his discussion in these psychological commonalities between Vonnegut and Hemingway, Broer traces their personal and artistic paths by pairing sets of works and protagonists in ways that show the two writers not only addressing similar concerns, but developing a response that in the end establishes an underlying kinship when it comes to the fate of the American hero of the twentieth century. Broer sees Vonnegut and Hemingway as fundamentally at war�with themselves, with one another�s artistic visions, and with the idea of war itself. Against this onslaught, he asserts, they wrote as a mode of therapy and achieved literary greatness through combative opposition to the shadows that loomed so large around them.

"H.R. Stoneback knows his Hemingway and his Paris. I had the incomparable experience of visiting Paris twice while working for Ernest Hemingway in 1959. I viewed the city at the side of the writer while he added the finishing touches to A MOVEABLE FEAST. Professor Stoneback's evocation of Hemingway's Paris of the 1920s is as close as I have come since to reliving those Paris days in the company of Ernest Hemingway. Reading this book will be a treat for all who love Hemingway and Paris, and a pleasant surprise for all readers." - Valerie Hemingway, author of RUNNING WITH THE BULLS: MY YEARS WITH THE HEMINGWAYS "Professor Stoneback's lyrical prose takes the reader inside the soul of Hemingway's Paris, penetrating the surface of guide-books to reveal tantalizing secrets."- A.E. Hotchner, playwright, novelist, memoirist, Hemingway friend, and author of the classic PAPA HEMINGWAY "H.R. Stoneback's intense reading of Hemingway's Paris-revealing Hemingway's nuanced rendering of the deus loci and his intentionally subtle infusion of numinosity-is nothing short of nonpareil. Stoneback's work undoes decades of weak and negative criticism of Hemingway. Read this classic piece-a benchmark in the creative essay-and you will see exactly how and why Hemingway's Paris became Stoneback's Paris and by extension your Paris. Stoneback's HEMINGWAY'S PARIS: OUR PARIS? shows, ever so illustratively and ever so doucement, how and why we read Hemingway." - Allen Josephs, past president of the Hemingway Foundation and Society, and author of RITUAL AND SACRIFICE IN THE CORRIDA "No one has written better or more wisely about Ernest Hemingway's Paris than H.R. Stoneback." - Donald Junkins, author of JOURNEY TO THE CORRIDA and other books H.R. Stoneback's 9000-word prose-poem HEMINGWAY'S PARIS: OUR PARIS? constitutes a masterpiece of both appreciation and analysis by a scholar whose knowledge and love of Paris is as deep, profound and genuine as his knowledge and love of Hemingway.

In arguably his most famous work, Ernest Hemingway wrote, “A man can be destroyed, but not defeated.” It is perhaps this single line from The Old Man and the Sea that gives the most insight into the mind of one of the greatest writers in American history. Hemingway was a man who rejected defeat at every opportunity. He was a man whose desire to be the best won him respect, but also lost him friends. He lived his life the way he wanted, rarely stopping to apologize. Even in death, Hemingway proved his determination, trying to take his own life at least twice before he ultimately succeeded with the final blast of a shotgun. Hemingway served as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross in WWI. While in Italy on duty, he decided that he was not near enough to the action and went closer to the front. Just as he got to the front, an enemy mortar shell exploded in close proximity to Hemingway. Despite being injured in the blast, Ernest found a young Italian soldier who was severely hurt and carried him to safety, taking several rounds of machine gun fire to his leg. For his bravery, Hemingway was awarded the Italian silver medal of valor. While in the hospital still recovering from his injuries, Hemingway fell in love with a nurse named Agnes von Kurowsky. Ernest had to return to America, but he vowed that one day he would marry von Kurowsky. It was not to be, however, as Hemingway received a letter only months after returning home saying that his love had fallen for an Italian officer. He was devastated, and his initial broken heart may explain why he made a habit out of leaving women before they could leave him. Hemingway was married four times and had affairs in each of his marriages.
