David Bourne, a young American writer, finds his Mediteranean honeymoon interrupted by a flood of good notices about his second novel. Catherine, his wife, encourages him in his work...or does she?
Does Catherine resent the time that he spends at his desk? Is he crazy, or has she put a younger, more exotic woman in his path? All David knows is that this is a dangerous game.
In telling who survives this triangle, Hemingway reveals a rare tenderness and vulnerability. Catherine steps off the pages rounded and whole, convincing and deeply appealing. And in David, we see Hemingway himself, the quality of vision required to sustain his own writing, and its price.

Born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1899, Ernest Hemingway served in the Red Cross during World War I as an ambulance driver and was severely wounded in Italy. He moved to Paris in 1921, devoted himself to writing fiction, and soon became part of the expatriate community, along with Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, and Ford Madox Ford. He revolutionized American writing with his short, declarative sentences and terse prose. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, and his classic novella THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing, and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho, on July 2, 1961.
